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?

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.
