M.A.D. Cat is an antagonist of Inspector Gadget. He is Dr. Claw's fat pet cat who schemes with him.


He is named after M.A.D., the organization run by his owner, and his species, a cat.


M.A.D. Cat is another way to reinforce the emotions of his owner Dr. Claw. When Claw is pleased, he snickers or laughs along with him, or for him. If Dr. Claw is annoyed always pounds his desk, he follows through with his terrible yowl. He is Brain's arch-nemesis as well. M.A.D. Cat also has a small doll of Inspector Gadget (character), which he "claws" at.


M.A.D. Cat is obese and has dark gray fur with black and white stripes, a white patch on the tip of his tail, and yellow eyes. In Gadget and the Gadgetinis, he is dark gray, has black stripes, and a brown-ish mouth and fatter.


  • In the CGI series and live action films, M.A.D. Cat is a female, unlike the other appearances which have M.A.D. Cat as a male. 
  • He seems to be able to understand English quite well because in "Launch Time," he takes instructions from Dr. Claw and operates the controls of the M.A.D. Mobile (firing a missile).
  • M.A.D. Cat appears in the live-action movies as a white Persian cat. Both films feature him as a female. 
  • His Polish name is Szalejot.
