    I first noticed Orangey way way back from its unforgetable performance in 1962′ s GIGOT. And only now I came to know he’s the same kitten from Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Incredible Shrinking Man. Great, lovely actor you were, dear Orangey!!

    I always thought “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” had the greatest ending in movie history, with Orangey stealing the scene as he peeks out of Audrey Hepburn’s raincoat while the lovers embrace in the rain.

    I love this kitty Orangey, what a cat ! , you are truly missed now and always. When Hepburn finds him again in that box in the allyway and he crys out to her all wet, cold & scared I lose it every time, what a great sceen, what a great Cat. R.I.P. little guy,

    Orangey’s greatest role was as ‘Rhubarb’ for which he won his first Patsy award [the animal equivalent of the Academy Award], ten years later he won his second for ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ ,
    he appeared in several other films, and TV series like ‘Our Miss Brooks’ and ‘My Favourite Martian’ , a true Hollywood star was Orangey, not sure when he made the transition, but hope he’s happy in Heaven!
