Most people in the world who know a domestic cat understand the wild look in their pet's eye. This film looks at those thinly veiled behaviors between domestic cats and their wild cousins and ancestors, specifically to draw those parallels and to explain to 'owners' what they are seeing when they watch their cat. There are scenes of cats leaping, landing, running up trees like leopards and all the behaviors we are used to seeing in domestic cats, but drawn exactly from their wild equivalent.

Of course, while our own ancient ancestors would certainly have been the ones in trouble trekking through Africa with leopards stalking them in the branches overhead, in today’s world it’s the big cats who are in trouble. Humans have hunted their prey, conquered their territory and killed them for revenge, for fear, for fashion, and for fun.

And yet, we just can’t get enough of our little cats.
