The 2019 remake of Stephen King’s “Pet Sematary” stars two different rescue cats that play the character of Church. These cats had never acted before, and it took a lot of work to get them to do what the director wanted on set. We spoke with the animal trainer and animal coordinator for the film, Melissa Millett and Kirk Jarrett, to find out what it takes to train a cat for TV and film.

  1. I used a lot of these techniques to train my dog. It’s actually pretty easy and if I had the time I’d love to train him for movies. He’s a very quick learner and has the cutest look.

  2. You did a heck of a job with the cat that plays zombie cat church! Damn, that was one scraggly looking evil Kat (cat with K) for Killer Kat😎😡😼..whoa

  3. My cat is like ridiculously easy to train. I taught her to high five in about a week, and when I call her she’ll run to me faster than even my dog no matter where she is in the house. She doesn’t even need treats to be coaxed all she wants is to be petted and cuddled. Guess she’d probably make a pretty good cat actor lol

  4. Watched the movie and it was really good. Pet cemetery is one of my favorite horror movies and I was afraid it was gonna be bad. But honestly it was so good. The cats did amazing!
