This film has been the center of controversy since its release, due to many allegations of animal abuse and cruelty during production. This included allegations that a number of kittens had been killed during filming due to dangerous filming conditions. Due to the film not being supervised by any animal advocacy groups during production, these reports cannot be confirmed or denied. However, many have noted that the extreme and often dangerous conditions the animals were placed in (including footage of a cat falling off of a cliff) were likely due to the filmmakers intentionally putting the animals into these situations.

At the beginning of the film, Milo is seen as a very young kitten, perhaps three weeks old, nursing from his mother. When Otis the puppy scrambles up to their nest in the barn, a curious Milo topples over the side of the nest and the two animals meet for the first time. Strangely, from the moment he topples out of the nest to the moment when he lands next to Otis, Milo has aged at least a month! See more »
Just let your heart lead and your feet will follow, and we'll bound and leap like a gentle breeze. Bound and leap like a zephyr set free. Bound, and, of course, leap.

"Koneko no Monotagari" is a rather enjoyable animal flick about a dog and cat going their own ways in the Japanese wilderness,running into danger and eventually finding their mates.The Japanese version is way better,despite the graphic kitten/puppy birth scene.
It's cute but not overly cute and the narration and poem makes it sound so much like a storybook.I prefer this over "Babe" any day!
