the cat's gone viral!









TANDEM director Simon Tofield's short film Cat Man Do is now officially a web phenomenon, having clocked-up almost one million hits on just one of its numerous YouTube postings.

The scenario of a persistent moggy pestering its dormant owner is based on the director's own observations of feline behaviour.

This artist knows how to draw -- the expressive elegance of his line is deceptively simple -- and as everyone who knows cats knows, he KNOWS cats.

As we Yanks say when something's really, really good, Totally awesome

I love this animation so much I try to watch it every day because it just makes me so happy. I sent it to everyone I know because I feel that it illustrates perfectly what it is like waking up in my bed in the morning. Only in my bed there are usually THREE of these delightfully irritating and lovable creatures. Thank you so much for this creation, I can not WAIT to see more.

I laugh out loud and watch this several times a day. The subtlety of the expressions, the timing, all of it. perfect. Great job, I'm so happy I found out who did this. Thank you so much!

It is the subtle attention to detail which really makes me laugh about this awesome film. Don't we all have an unused cat scratching post in our bedroom! When woken this morning with a particularly persistent cat I could only laugh as I was bullied into an early breakfast. And that's your fault for which 'Fish' & 'Kevin' are very grateful.

I thank you so much for making this piece of animation. Its so real, so warm, so catish!

Please pay the artist an extra drink from me. Maybe he can do a comic alike that about the cat...it would make the world a better place. Thanks so much!
