As 2012 fast approaches, I thought we’d take a moment to watch something adorable and funny. As I’ve pointed out before, one good place for that is British animator Simon Tofield’s creation, Simon’s Cat, who has his own YouTube channel and series of books. Simon’s Cat is a mischievous, incorrigible little creature who gets into all sorts of misadventures. Allow me to demonstrate with a few examples.
The first is the latest holiday themed clip called “Fowl Play”.
Next is “Double Trouble” which introduces The Kitten, a new character in the Cat’s universe.
Lastly, we have “Cat and Mouse”, which is evidence enough of why cat’s and computers don’t mix.
If you like these, there are many more examples on YouTube. Some of my personal favorites are “Beyond the Fence”, “Fly Guy”, “TV Dinner”, “Let Me In!” and “Catnap”. And as anyone who owns a cat can see, the cartoons, though played for laughs, are not too far off the mark when it comes to cat behavior.
Have a Happy New Year!
