'''Cat R. Waul''' is the main antagonist in An American Tail: Fievel Goes West. Cat R. Waul's devious scheme seemed a long way to go just to feast upon a large number of mice. Waul is a businesscat, above such primitive and gruesome methods of collecting his food as chasing the mice down and eating them; 'an unnecessary expenditure of calories'. Instead, his plan was to travel to New York from Green River and convince the impoverished mice there to move west, insisting that out west cats and mice were friends. And he forced his gang to keep up the act by being nice to the mice, much to their dismay.

In a Deleted Scene, he Checks Miss Kitty's Teeth. Later, when Fievel attacks Waul with a fork, he narrowly escapes being eaten again when Waul overhears the enchanting singing voice of Tanya Mousekewitz. Completely entranced, he picks the unaware young singer up and brings her to Miss Kitty, ordering her to get Tanya ready to perform in his saloon, insisting that [[Tanya Mousekewitz|Tanya]] is his 'diva'. When he is finally ready to unveil his evil plan at the official opening of his saloon, Tanya is placed safely up above with Miss Kitty while the rest of the mice are on what is secretly a giant mouse trap, to be activated when he cuts the red ribbon in front of his saloon. It is then that Tiger, Wylie Burp and Fievel storm in to save the day, engaging them in a slingshot showdown that results in Waul being flung into a mail bag and picked up by a train, forced to endure the cuddles of his busty owner.

Although the other villains failed, Cat R. Waul succeeded killing Fievel's innocent parental figures whom he considered cruel, hateful, and abusive parents ([[Mama Mousekewitz|Mama]] and [[Papa Mousekewitz]]).
 
*Cat R. Waul shares similarities with [[disney:Scar|Scar]] from ''The Lion King''. Both succeeded in killing the hero's innocent parental figure(s) ([[disney:Mufasa|Mufasa]] for Scar, [[Mama Mousekewitz|Mama]] and [[Papa Mousekewitz]] for Cat R. Waul) and also force away the protagonist from their home (Scar tells Simba to "run away and never return" and Cat R. Waul make Fievel, Tanya and Yasha orphans and causes them to return to New York City, so [[Mrs. Brisby]] adopts them).
 
*Car R. Waul shares a similarities to Snidley Whiplash, one of the most classic villains in Dudley Do Right, He has a humorus taste of old fasion western music (either than the Conducter mouse, whom escapes him), He is also a tragedy villain when his human owner dresses him like an infant.
