Synopsis: A mother farm cat finds some orphaned baby skunks in the woods and brings them home to her barn to raise them alongside her own kittens.
Featured Feline: Mother Cat, who is known by only that name, is a beautiful tabby Maine Coon.
The synopsis is basically the entire plot of the short film, apart from the fact that the baby skunks are being threatened by a hungry hawk and the Mother Cat saves them, not once but twice!
The Mother Cat is shown feeding and cleaning both the skunks and her own kittens.
Cat Burglars (Scene Stealers): Mother cat’s kittens, Blackie, Sandy and Puff, steal the show whenever they are on screen.
Puff is featured in particular, being smaller than the other kittens. Oddly the kittens seem almost as out of place as the skunks, having completely different colors than their mother and being different sizes as well.
The kittens and the skunks end up being one happy family.
Final Mewsings: Mother cat is obviously an advocate for adoption.
