I decided to copy this post from the lost media wiki forums to see if i could recieve your help
I remember when I was around 9 years old (in 2010) or so, my mom and I were sitting in front of the TV, trying to figure out what to watch. We were browsing Comcast On Demand (long before it was Xfinity On Demand), when we came across this 3D animated film that was about this alien who resembled a cat, crash-landing on Earth and befriending a human man. We didn’t end up watching it, we watched something else, but I haven’t found the alien cat movie since.
The only clip I saw of it was a short scene that played when you selected the “watch a preview” option. The clip began with the blue-ish gray alien cat looking at his destroyed spaceship on a green hill. He sighs and then turns around, with the camera slowly panning upward to reveal a yellow house just over the hill.
I remember the movie having a strange name. Might’ve been the name of the alien cat character. Every time I try to look up “alien cat movie” I keep getting “The Cat From Outer Space” from 1978. For some reason, I have the feeling that the film is from France, but that could be just a hunch.
Edit: I vaguely remember the synopsis being something like “(insert name of alien cat here) crash-lands on Earth and becomes the household pet to (insert name of male human character here)” The movie was also free, which may or may not say something about the film’s quality. I don’t actually know if the movie is French or not, I just had a feeling that it was, it could come from anywhere. Heck, for all I know it could’ve been a direct-to-dvd movie that they put On Demand or something.
I made a storyboard of the clip I saw. I tried to include all I could remember about the clip.
(in other news, I can’t draw houses!)
Edit 2: Ok, since I haven’t gotten much response, I’m going to list some of the things that I found (that aren’t the movie) to avoid confusion.
List of things that aren’t the alien cat movie:
- The Cat From Outer Space (1978 live-action Disney film)
- Space Cat Hob (2015 Short Film)
- A Cat In Paris (2010 French animated film)
- A Monster In Paris (2011 French animated film)
- Tamala 2010: A Punk Cat In Space (2001/2002 Japanese animated film)

Longshot since it’s not 3D https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1307224/
I think the movie you might be looking for is Meow (2017)
It has a blue fur alien cat creature who crash lands on earth and is adopted by a family in a light yellow house? It’s a Honk Kong film.
I’ll add a few images so you can have a look 🙂
