Orangey the Cat is the only feline double-winner of the Patsy Award, the animal kingdom's equivalent of the Oscar. The Patsy Award is given out by the American Humane Association's Hollywood branch and stands for Picture Animal Top Star of the Year. Orangey won his first Patsy for his cinema debut in Rhubarb (1951), playing the eponymous baseball team-owning cat in the 1951 film. Ten years later, he won his second Patsy, playing "Cat" in Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961), a homeless feline described as a "poor slob without a name" by Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn), whom he visits. Orangey, who sometimes was billed as Rhubarb the Cat, was an orange-colored tabby trained by the famous animal trainer Frank Inn, known for such famous critter thespians as the pig who played Arnold Ziffel on Green Acres (1965) and Higgins the Dog, who appeared in the TV series "Petticoat Junction" (1964) (TV)_ and originated the role of Benji in the movies. Both Arnold and Higgins were Patsy winers. Frank Inn's critters won a total of 40 Pasty Awards during his career. Other films that Orangey the Cat appeared in during his 15 year career, include The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957), Gigot (1962), and Village of the Giants (1965). Orangey's longest gig was a recurring role as Minerva the Cat in the TV series Our Miss Brooks (1952) from 1952 through 1958.
