Cat Out of the Bag Alert! This review contains some spoilers for this film!
Synopsis: A kitten named Freda (voiced by Delaney O’Hara) applies for a job as a witch’s familiar.
Cartoon Cat: Freda applies to a witch named Zoe (Anthea Hill) who asks her qualifications. Freda can ride a broom and can also perform some magic of her own, even though she needs more practice.
Zoe sends Freda out into the world to collect the ingredients for a potion that will make her the witch’s familiar. The items are rare and hard to find.
When it comes to one ingredient, Freda is too afraid to get the right thing, so improvises instead.
When Freda returns, Zoe explains that the potion will turn Freda into a witch herself. Things don’t go exactly as planned (and we won’t spoil the ending here) but things work out okay in this charming short film that blends live action with CGI animation.
Final Mewsings: Cats are adaptable.
