Ever wondered what it would be like if your favorite felines starred in a blockbuster film? We've dreamed up a fantasy casting scenario that features famous Internet cats in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire." Take a look at our paw-tastic picks for "The Hunger Cats."
KATNISS EVERDEEN is LIL BUB
Every film needs a champion who rises above life's hard knocks. Katniss Everdeen, played by Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence, is the persevering protagonist in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire." She's able to overcome seemingly impossible obstacles, much like Lil Bub, the courageous kitty who's faced her handicaps head-on after being born with some disadvantages. Bub has beat the odds and earned her place as our Katniss.
PEETA MELLARK is SAM HAS EYEBROWS
The role of Peeta Mellark is filled by the affable Josh Hutcherson. As a young man constantly fighting for both his life and the girl he loves, Peeta is often dealing with an excess of emotions. Sam, the cat with eyebrows (samhaseyebrows), can relate. He is emoting 24/7.
HAYMITCH ABERNATHY is GRUMPY CAT
Grouchy. Irritable. Doesn't like you. These qualities could describe both Haymitch Abernathy and Grumpy Cat, so it's a casting choice made in movie heaven. Woody Harrelson plays the part of Haymitch brilliantly, but when we asked if Grumpy Cat had any interest in some screen time, the answer was a resounding "NO!"
GALE HAWTHORNE is HAMILTON THE HIPSTER CAT
Gale Hawthorne carries himself with a cool sense of swagger, much like Hamilton the Hipster Cat. Plus, they both look great with facial hair. Hamilton clearly has the confidence needed to take on this meaty role, which is played by the hunky Liam Hemsworth.
PRESIDENT CORIOLANUS SNOW is COLONEL MEOW
When your life goal is world domination, there is only one cat that comes to mind: Colonel Meow. That is why the furry terror is a shoo-in for President Coriolanus Snow, the evil leader of Panem. The part is portrayed by a convincing Donald Sutherland, but it's the role Colonel Meow was born to play.
PLUTARCH HEAVENSBEE is PUDGE
We love watching Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee, but definitely feel like Pudge can handle the role. The cat admits it's not too much into playtime, a well-suited quality for Plutarch, who is all business when it comes to bringing down The Capitol.
EFFIE TRINKET is CHOUPETTE LAGERFELD
To play the part of Effie Trinket, you must have a sense of style. So who better to portray the decked-out lady from The Capitol than Choupette Lagerfeld, the fawned-upon feline of famed designer Karl Lagerfeld? In real life, Effie is played to perfection by a dolled-up Elizabeth Banks. Do you think Karl would volunteer to do Choupette's wardrobe for free?
FINNICK ODAIR is HENRI, LE CHAT NOIR
Cool, calm and confident. We could be talking about either Finnick Odair, played by the handsome Sam Claflin, or Henri, the famed cat from the Le Chat Noir video series. Either way, both have the right attitude, a great look and legions of lady fans.
CINNA is MARU
Cinna has a lot to hide. Played by the mysterious Lenny Kravitz, the beloved District 12 stylist is a double agent who is dedicated to rebellion and the overthrow of The Capitol. That's why Maru, a cat known for hiding in boxes, is just right for the role. This feline knows how to keep a low profile.

ENOBARIA is PRINCESS MONSTER TRUCK
It may be hard to imagine it by looking at the lovely face of Meta Golding, who portrays fierce career tribute Enobaria, but her character in the film is known for having razor-like teeth. That's why fanged feline Princess Monster Truck is the most obvious kitty casting choice for this role.
