Cat Out of the Bag Alert! This review contains some spoilers for this film!
Synopsis: Tino (Oskari Joutsen) is a teenaged boy who has to handle a stud date for his mother involving two Siamese cats.
Featured Felines: Tino is sleeping in bed with a pedigree Siamese cat named Diablo when his mother awakens him, telling him that she has been called to work and he has to handle the “date” between Diablo and another pedigree named Nefertiti.
Tino gets up and feeds Diablo some shrimp.
Mirka (Anna Paavilainen) and Lissu (Päivi Mäkinen) arrive with Nefertiti in a carrier. They let her out so she and Diablo can become acquainted.
Tino serves tea to the ladies as the cats carry on about their business in the other room. We won’t spoil how this very sweet short film comes out, though! Diablo was played by Sarsenstone Galearis “Frank” of Pienpeto while Nefertiti was played by Sandypoints Mokita of Pienpeto.
Final Mewsings: Cat dates can be awkward for everyone involved.
