It's a Cat's Life

Please choose a format above.

What could be better than a box full of kittens? Puppies. Anyway, we digress. 

There are so many kittens in It’s A Cat’s Life, it’s practically a Russian novel of feline-ity. From the fine folks at Frith, who brought you Mother Mack Trains Her Seven Puppies (which would have been much more fun) and/or The Littlest Puppy Grows Up (which would have been such a better choice for riffing), this short from the 1940s is not about puppies.

Nevertheless, Bridget and Mary Jo manage to soldier through this primer on the small domesticated carnivore that has the temerity not to be a dog.
