In addition to the cat acting, it has perfect performances by Vincent Price, Peter Lorre and Boris Karloff. This review of the DVD release is great in telling the how the movie came to be made.

There were several Orangey aka Rhubarb cats, all trained by Frank Inn, as I've discovered, but that doesn't really matter, imho, because they were all talented cats. Here's Orangey aka Rhubarb as "Cleopatra" in some frames from "Comedy of Terrors"-
