What is the nature of love? A sassy, brassy bird lands on a tree limb and moons a cat sitting there peacefully. The cat ignores the bird at first, but it continues its loud and coarse assault. The cat tries force: hitting, stomping, torching, and nuking the bird. Each time, the bird returns, thrusting its bare bottom in the cat's face. Another attempt at ignoring the bird reduces it first to tears then to illness. The cat saves it. Has the cat had a change of heart, or does it just enjoy inflicting pain? Is the bird expressing love? Written by <>

One Of The Funniest Animated Shorts, Ever.
7 July 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this short in '95 at SPIKE AND MIKE FESTIVAL OF ANIMATION. An infectious piece of film that will have the most jade film watcher laughing. Sure it's one-noted, but it's works. I came across several years ago on a compilation tape of shorts featured on the Spike & Mike tour. I don't know if it's till in print. Do yourself a big favor by tracking down this short. You won't be sorry.
