Short Film Profile

A Cat's Tail

A bit of a love triangle, a tale of a scruffy, well loved pet pussycat who holds a torch for an unobtainable love. The scene is set on his favourite place… the family car, but today his owner is off to the carwash - with poor puss an unwilling, unbeknown passenger! Follow his epic journey via fast lanes, speed bumps and worse, culminating in shampoo, polish and blow dry at the BIG sluice.
