In about one month, Cats will be released to theatres, but for now, Universal has released a second trailer for the film with a closer look at a star-studded ensemble of actors as cats.

The upcoming movie musical’s second trailer shows the cats doing more cat-like activities than just dancing and singing.

One cat is playing with catnip in a blinged-out container, another yells “Milk!” and James Corden’s cat even hisses at another feline.
