Friday Films: The Private Life of a Cat

“Perhaps a nearly forgotten product of New York’s avant garde art scene can show new directions for cat videos.”

~Alexis C. Madrigal, The Atlantic

Today’s Friday Film was suggested by Lynda, another volunteer with LAPCATS.  You will have to follow the link to The Atlantic to watch it.

“This is the best film I’ve ever seen about the life of cats. It was made in 1947 and there is no audio.  It starts with two cats meeting, then shows the actual birth of kittens (in case you’re squeamish).  It follows them through learning to walk, eat, climb, play.  The nice thing about this is that both mom and dad participate in their lives, where our fosters only have mothers.  The only down side is that at the end, it (realistically) suggests that the cycle is going to start over again, but then this was 1947 and animal birth control was not something that people thought of.  It’s about 20 minutes, but well worth watching.”
