Animals are always cute, but hope such movies aren't made anymore
This is a movie about a great friendship of a kitten and a pug who are going on an adventure and try to make their way back to their home farm. It was filmed for 4 years an came out in 1986 in Japan.
This is mainly a movie for children, but anyone who loves animals will enjoy some scenes in it that have animal cuteness overload. I say "some scenes" because there is a huge number that are very disturbing. Now, I can't prove if indeed multiple cats and pugs were killed. It wouldn't surprise me considering the time it was filmed, animal rights were far less of an interest back then, and certain scenes like the kitten falling off a cliff sure seem to be life endangering. At the same time I heard the guy who produced this film was an animal lover who had an island that was a sort of sanctuary for animals. This of course doesn't prove much, we do know stories of animal support organizations that were guilty of killing animals or not giving them enough care, but it does give one some hope that animals didn't get killed. Still, even if we assume those are just rumors there are too many scenes where animals are in obvious distress. The one where the cat is attacked by seagulls is a great example. This ruined a movie a lot for me. I sure hope there has been a greater progress with animal treatment on the movie set. One ca make cute movies without doing this to animals and it is not worth the entertainment (it only ruins it).
But yes some adorable scenes such as the kitty with the piglets are in this movie as well.
