This wonderful short is directed by Rosana Sullivan and it's traditional animation rather than the CG usual from Pixar. The drawing is so expressive -- how great are the cats eyes? -- and as someone who once adopted a ratty-looking nervous and unfriendly street kitten, this really struck a chord. My heart melted when it learned to make a friend. Perhaps other cat owners or pitbull fans will be similarly moved? 

There have been six new shorts from Pixar's new initiative. Here's what they say about this program:

The SparkShorts program is designed to discover new storytellers, explore new storytelling techniques, and experiment with new production workflows. These films are unlike anything we’ve ever done at Pixar, providing an opportunity to unlock the potential of individual artists and their inventive filmmaking approaches on a smaller scale than our normal fare.”

I miss traditional animation. Isn’t animation reaching redundancy if its trying so hard to be “realistic”? Isn’t the point of it to be “imagined”?

Terrific. The moment where the woman pets the dog and he looks scared... ;_;

This is my favorite short of the Sparkshort series so far as I was moved by it as someone that used to own cats and dogs.
