Rick and Morty Season 4 Episode 4 "Claw and Hoarder Special Ricktim’s Morty" gets an in-depth analysis. Is this dragon episode the most obscene episode of Rick and Morty yet? What is the horrible secret of the talking cat in this episode, and how could it connect back to Mr. Jellybean in Season 1? In this episode of #Ricksplained, Erik Voss, Tommy Bechtold, and the voice of Mr. Goldenfold, BRANDON JOHNSON, discuss the dark themes of this #rickandmorty episode, and whether we should take the advice of the cat and stop overthinking things... or whether that advice is actually covering up the cat's disgusting sexual history.

    Point against this theory: Rick didn't kill the cat. He could do so easily, and he did to Mr. Jellybean, but he didn't, he just told the cat to go.

    My guess : The cat is from season one a rickle in time (not actually in it ) a painful reminder the universe the earth they destroyed . All the horrifying thing they and we the audience we forgot. The cat somehow made to that universe and just wanted things to be normal and no one notice him or find out out the crazy messed up world he came from or did to get there, it brings Rick to near suicide and Jerry to a state of panic led hysteria because he recognizes earth.Rick couldn’t kill the cat because he caused it. :/

    They probably saw the cat raping corpses of the people it murdered Or maybe he raped them in front of family Maybe he was a nazi that raids towns and force soldiers to rape everyone, even their underage daughters And he probably came from a land of cat society and was banned from the planet due to inhuman (i meant incat) actions And was sent to space to drift off to nowhere he landed on eath which had the same oxygen, He also had a for similar to a cat so he considers himself a cat Adapted the environment and settled in jerry's house (haha tom and jerry reference)

    The cat was a peeping tom. He’s seen some horrible things. Someone caught him while he watched said person do something disgusting and evil so said person turned him into a peeping tomcat. Jerry doesn’t like the fact that he saw his parents in the same way he doesn’t like the fact that his father liked to watch his mother get railed from inside their closet.

    at the end of episode 10 of season 2 (where rick ends up in jail), the cat can be seen at mr. poopy butthole's house (where he is still recovering from being shot by beth) being fed by him when he "announces" the next season... wonder why they did not mention that here...

    I agree with ScreenCrush the episode is about fandom. But he never explained what Rick and Jerry did see about the cat in the end, maybe it really is about rape. Cat in a box lol, open it and see whats inside, well you better should had never done it :D

    my theroy is that the cat has some connection to the opening that shows our lord and savior cthulu ether its an eldritch abomination itsself or its an agnt for one... that would xplain the involintary disgust horror and nar suicidal reaction to seeing into th cats mind or its true nature currently hidden from view in the form of a cat... this may not even be dilibrat on the part of the "cat" as its said that seeing something the mind cant except or understand the mind will try to fill that sight with something else.

    So when the cat gets placed in the box he becomes schrodinger's cat. The cat will, based on a certain criteria be alive or dead at the same time. The cat is a visual representation of saying without all facts to decipher the state the viewer will never fully know.

    The cat is ashamed of the reason he can talk, something happened to him that give him that ability, something he doesn't want to talk about or answer questions but he cannot stop bring on, like if he his with a trauma. I believe that he was sex abused and then, for some reason he got the ability to talk! Animal rape would make a lot of people vomiting and react like we see Jerry and Rick react.

    The cat could be an allegory re the truly dark nature of humanity. if you could watch humanity(all of it) from the divine perspective you’d probably be horrified to see the range of deviancy which occurs around the world at any given moment. Maybe like as a warning to truth seekers to keep in mind it’s not beneficial to know ALL things.

    The fact that Rick didn’t kill the cat must be because of the fact that the cat is just is. The cat didn’t choose to be like this. A lot of people have mentioned it but I agree that it’s likely the offspring a cat and human. That would be some freaky stuff that even Rick probably couldn’t comprehend.
