Synopsis: A cat runs away from home to start life anew in the big city, but living independently has its dark side, too.
Cartoon Cat: This hilarious and dark animated short paints an interesting picture of what might happen when a cat disappears from home for a time. The cat’s owner sadly searches for her lost kitty, not realizing he has moved to the big city, taken an apartment and gotten a job as a hairdresser.
Things start out fine but then the seedier side of the city takes its toll and the cat turns to drink. But even at its darkest the short retains a biting and smart sense of humor.
Final Mewsings: Cats can make it on their own but often choose not to.
