Question: How does one execute code in all instances of a class?

Please remember that I am a newbie at C++, and the code may be wrong.

For example:

[code:1]
class animal
{
public:
int x;
int y;
int move()
{
x += 1;
y += 1;
}
}

class cat : class animal
{
public
int toes
int move()
{
x+=1
y+=2
toes = 6
}
}

cat Mrbonkers;
animal Rat;
animal dog;
[/code:1]

Yes, the cat class is inherrited from animal.

How do I execute the move() function in all three instances of the classes, without doing this:

[code:1]
Rat.move();
dog.move();
Mrbonkers.move();
[/code:1]

Any help would be appreciated.

[code:1]
animal *allAnimals[3];
allAnimals[0] = &Mrbonkers;
allAnimals[1] = &Rat;
allAnimals[2] = &dog;

for(int i=0; i<3; i++)
allAnimals[i]->move();
[/code:1]

It seems to me the code needs to run three times, you're going to have to call it three times.

I'd keep my animals in an array to begin with and then it would be even easier to call it on all three.
