Simon's Cat is an animated cartoon series by the English animator, Simon Tofield. Each episode features a hungry house cat who uses increasingly heavy-handed tactics to get its owner to feed it. The series is animated with the Adobe Flash software.

The first film in the series, entitled Cat Man Do, won the "Best Comedy" award at the British Animation Awards 2008.[1]
