Charming movie for kids and cat lovers
31 July 2001 | by (Europe) – See all my reviews

When I first saw "The Little Cat" I had tears in my eyes at the end of it and I had to give my own two cats a very very big hug and promise them I would never get them lost in all my life.

I think this film is OK for children, the little kitten is a really cute one and the adventures it lives with it's new friends in Moscow are understandable for even the younger ones, but I recommend that parents should watch it with them together. Some scenes maybe are a bit to violent for younger children, for example when the "bad guys" are menacing the "good guy" hurting his cats, it can't be clearly seen that in fact they are NOT doing any harm to the kitten.

I can't find any production notes about this film, so I don't have any idea if during this production animals have been harmed. At least I hope they didn't, because I'd love to see this movie again but without having a bad conscience.

Another recommendation to the parents: After watching "The Little Cat", lots of children want to have a little cat of their own. But please: Don't get one if you are not REALLY SURE you want to have one. Then you don't have to throw it away like garbage when the children are tired of playing with it and don't want to have it anymore.
