Friday Films: Simon’s Cat – Pawtrait

There’s a new Simon’s Cat video in town and we think you will enjoy it, especially if you’ve ever tried to take a formal photograph or portrait of your feline family member!

.

 

Along with the video comes the announcement that an 11-minute color video about Simon’s Cat going to visit his vet is planned.  Says the blog:

“The Simon’s Cat team has some very exciting announcements coming up in the next few weeks.

The month of June will see us reaching two amazing milestones on our official YouTube channel, passing 500 million views and 3 million subscribers!

And to mark this incredible following, we have been developing a script for a special 11-minute film (that’s right, 11 minutes!) inspired by the most fan-requested theme: visiting the vets! The film will be extra special as it will also be the first to be animated in colour!”

Dollwet and his animal stars live in Coolangatta, Australia, and Dollwet posts on YouTube as "Catmantoo." Dollwet’s company is Malabu Dog Training.  You can read more Didga, Dollwet and his training methods on his website.  You can also follow them on Catmantoo’s Facebook page.

Friday Films: Crazy Time–Simon’s Cat

CatBehaviorZoomies:  the act of running full speed, usually in a circular motion around the backyard, open field or in your living room

Do your cats ever get the zoomies?  Dogs can get the zoomies too, but they are usually never as dramatic as cat zoomies, because dogs generally are pretty earthbound.  But cats… when cats get the zoomies, sometimes they can fly.  And when cats get the zoomies, nothing is safe.

Here’s a new Simon’s Cat video, in which Simon’s Cat gets the zoomies.  If your cats ever get the zoomies, I’m sure you will relate!
