My Cat: The (Animated Short)

Mark Bailey is a young animator working in New York, and just last night I checked out his Foxtrot Studios web site because I heard he’d created a short animated film called My Cat. Now, as everybody here is acutely aware - based on my blog’s "Cat Nap Tuesday" feature - I’m a huge lover of animals of the feline persuasion. So I checked out My Cat, and got a good laugh out of it.

The conceit of the film is funny. Basically, it’s that cats do annoying things (like knocking over dinner dishes and Christmas trees, etc.). In this case, however, one orange kitty’s behavior escalates, and escalates and escalates...

I don’t want to ruin the (strangely plausible...) punch-line of the short, but I certainly had a good time with this well-done and amusing animated piece, and I hope you will too, so I’m tagging it for today’s link to a cool site.

I plan to check in with Mark Bailey and Foxtrot Studios from time to time to see what else he’s got cooking there.
