Confuse-a-Cat is a sketch that appears in "Man's Crisis of Identity in the Latter Half of the 20th Century," the fifth episode of Monty Python's Flying Circus.


In a suburban lounge near Esher, husband (Michael Palin) and his wife (Terry Jones) call a veterinarian (Graham Chapman) for their cat who just sits out on the lawn. The vet suggests that they confuse their cat and recommends they call Confuse-a-Cat Limited.

Confuse-a-Cat Limited arrives in a military fashion and puts on a performance for the cat consisting of random events, including Long John Silver walking onstage, a boxing match, and a penguin on a pogo stick. The confusion is successful and the cat returns to his owners.
