As a personal motivator, The Feline Philosopher has apparent need to boosting morale of those animals, which are experiencing breakdown. His inspiration tactics has two stages: first, he asks the broken down about his/her feelings and failures; then he performs tirade calling to rise against obstacles and go for own claims. This therapy worked especially fine on Wade in The Farmyard Feline Philosopher.
The Feline Philosopher looks like average cat from the cartoon, except black nose, whiskers on cheeks, fluffy tail and his characteristic outfit composed of red tie and blue fedora hat.
- The Feline Philosopher inspires other characters in a similar fashion to the Old Philosopher, a character developed by his voice actor.
- The Feline Philosopher talks with his lips moving, unlike most other animal characters in the Garfield segments of Garfield and Friends.
