Not a comedy. Not for cat lovers

This film isn't funny at all, at the beginning it's stupid, at the end - dramatic. The cat is only an excuse for Dad to hear what a skunk he was. Seriously, they couldn't come up with any funny idea with the cat except drinking scotch, constantly falling and pissing into a bag. I guess, none of the creators have a cat. What really puts me off is those terrible untenable cat screams were inserted in every appropriate and inappropriate moment. And the graphics of the cat is terrible too. The finale was rather touching, so I gave it two stars.
