Keeping your cat safe at Christmas

Here we have a combination of Simon’s Cat Christmas animations and the ever-reliable advice of Nicky Trevorrow of Cats Protection. (The Brits always use plurals for such things, as “Drinks party” or “Cats protections”. Americans would use the singular, “Cat protection” and “Cocktail party”—not “Cocktails party”.) Here’s Ms. Trevorrow on general cat behavior; note her […]

A Simon’s Cat Thanksgiving special

Here’s a short new Simon’s Cat animation called “Fast Food (a Thanksgiving special)”.  The two moggies team up to steal an entire Thanksgiving dinner! It’s curious, though, since Simon lives in the UK and I didn’t think they had Thanksgiving there. May the rest of you have good noms today!

Caturday felid special: Simon’s cat goes to the vet

I’ve been waiting a while for this special edition of Simon’s Cat to be posted on YouTube. It’s not only the first full-length cartoon (13 minutes), but also, as I recall, the first one in color. For that, and for its content, it gets its own Caturday Felid spot. Simon’s Cat gets his paw stung […]

Caturday felid trifecta: Simon’s Cat: “Off to the vet”; Porter the Toronto Police Marine Cat; Otter and Bengal cat pals

There’s a new “full length” color film of Simon’s Cat called “Off to the Vet”. Somehow I’ve seen a bit of this, but I can’t remember where, and it’s no longer on the Internet. It was hilarious. At any rate, there are several “making of” videos featuring Simon Tofield and his assistants. Here are three: […]

Thursday felid: a live drawing of Simon’s Cat, with a Star Wars theme

Reader Michael called my attention to this nice episode of Simon’s Cat, certainly because today is Star Wars Day:

Wednesday: Hili dialogue

Good morning on Wednesday February 15, 2017. It should be National Leftover Candy day, but it’s actually National Gumdrop Day and National Chewing Gum Day. It’s also National Flag Day of Canada, celebrating the adoption of its current flag in 1965: And can somebody tell me why the hockey team is called the “Maple Leafs” rather than the […]

Simon’s cat: Valentine specials

We have two Simon’s Cat specials for Valentine’s Day. In the first, Simon Tofield shows how he makes one of the pictures used in the second video.  I don’t think the cat’s inamorata is thrilled to get a box o’ mice. And here’s the final product for today: “Dinner Date: Starters.” Note how the cat is […]

Happy Halloween from Simon’s Cat

Simon’s cat has a special Halloween edition in which you can use your mouse (or touchpad) to navigate the woods, looking for the moggie.  h/t to Heather Hastie for this; her post on Heather’s Homilies includes several other Halloween-related Simon’s Cat items.

Two new episodes of Simon’s Cat

I have a stack of stuff that I could write about today, but for once I don’t feel like writing about anything. It’s a big mess out there, there’s precious little any of us can do to fix things, or so I think, and it’s dispiriting. Politicians are making big noises about how we will […]

Simon’s Cat Logic: on boxes (with added advice to staff)

Simon Tofield, the talented creator of Simon’s Cat, has teamed up with cat experts to provide not only cartoons, but also useful information about cats. The new series is called “Cat Logic.” Here we have an episode on boxes with cat expert Nicky Trevorrow from Cats Protection: h/t: Ken
