Poor Bastards of Cinema: It's Alive (1973) {Part 1} -UPDATED-

Since this Segment has been gone for a while, you are guaranteed TWO from one Film!

It has been over 2 years since an Animal qualified for this, but It's Alive gives us a good one.  This little Cat is the son's friend and companion.  With all that happens, it is good to have one.
The family has another kid: a monster baby!

They have the son stay with a neighbor (more on that later) for the delivery and keep him away in the aftermath of what happened (until they can sort it out).
He eventually runs home and gets in through the Attic, only to find....NO!!!! TOONCES!!!!
Alas poor kitty- you were just in the wrong house (the one with a monster baby) at the wrong time.

Is there a lesson to take away from this?  Don't be a cat?

I'll get back to you on that (I won't).

UPDATE: They do kill the Cat in the 2008 Remake, although it is the opposite.  Grabbed on-screen, but with no follow-up.
Next up, a man goes the extra mile to help the family in It's Alive.  His reward: death!!!  Stay tuned...
