Simon's Cat in Off to the Vet
The good news is that Simon Tofield has given us a full-color 12-minute Simon's Cat cartoon. The bad news is that that cat has been stung by a bee, and must go see the veterinarian. The cat does not want to go, so the struggle to get there is half the fun. This plays out like every cat owner's experience, from getting the cat into a carrier, to the waiting room full of strange animals, to the painful bill, to realizing that when a cat is asleep in your lap, the TV remote will be out of reach. While the film has just been uploaded to YouTube, it has already been shown at films festivals and won the McLaren Award for Best British Animation at the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2016.
