I remember this movie from the 90s, (maybe late 80s). US movie, I think.
Redhead child (girl or boy). I think it was a girl has this strange connection with a red cat.
There is a scene when this child and cat are in some Egyptian style room with cat cult, of something. It looks like the rest of the cats worshiped this red cat.
The mood of the movie is close to a horror film.
