It's important to know that once you've depleted the king's health bar, it will refill again completely, leading the battle into a second, much more difficult stage. Definitely play defensively whenever you see Crazy Claws being prepared. Royal Roar is also powerful, but can at least be avoided.
During the second stage, Tom will use Cat Slap instead of Royal Roar. It's a very powerful attack against a single target, so you'll want to defend and/or heal that target. The Itchy Scratchy attack is definitely worth defending against, since it deals major damage and also inflicts your characters with poison. Also, if possible, hit him and try to cancel out his move. Keep your health up with powerful healing spells and items and don't be afraid to use Phoenix Feathers when required. Also, another trick is to listen to what Drippy, Lord High Lord of the Fairies says, which is "He's standing up! You know what that means, Ollie-boy - Hit him hard!".
If you feel you have enough time, try to steal the Cat King's Claws with Swaine. Otherwise, work on trying to sneak your familiars in there with a few barrages of physical attacks, healing is necessary.
