Cuteness overload combined with a gentle, educational voiceover makes this straightforward short film a must for kid cat lovers who want to learn more about the early lives of our feline friends. Generally, the facts shared are simple, including tidbits about how cats became domesticated, why they sleep so much, instinct, and how their bodies develop. Morissette learns to hunt through playing, for her future as a farm cat who will help with pest control in the barn. Sensitive kids might have a hard time seeing the difficult lives of the Greek island cats, but this could open a door for conversation about how not all animals are domesticated throughout the world. These slow-paced kitten adventures are fun to watch, and there's lots of learning to be found here.
