The Top Ten

1 Tailchaser's Song V 1 Comment
2 Felidae

Felidae is a book that was made into a movie about a talking cat. This book/movie follows the cat detective, Francis, who tries to uncover the mysterious deaths of the cats in his neighborhood. He is aided by the old but intelligent cat Pascal and Bluebeard. The main inspiration from Warriors was the ending battle. Francis rips open the killer's stomach and any Warriors fan knows that was the inspiration for Tigerstar's death.

Watership Down is a novel about rabbits trying to escape their warren, when one of the rabbits gets a vision that everyone will die. Lead by Bigwig and Hazel, the rabbits leave the warren and encounter many obstacles. This book was a loose inspiration for everything on this list and it is one of the first novels about animals.
