Coming Attraction

From the people who brought you the Oscar-winning "No Country for Old Men," comes a tale of a young cat whose summer has seen the death of two of his siblings within a week.  Not yet recovered from that trauma, he thinks that at least things can't get worse - but oh, is he wrong!  Enter a large, black, fuzzy dog (with a bad haircut) who comes to spend a three-day weekend, forcing the young cat to feel that the only way he can survive those days is to Live In The Basement!!

For release in Fall 2012: 

No Household for Young Cats

It's all fun and games until kitty pees on your bed.

Having Walken as a father would be enough to send me to the basement, frankly.

Chris said...

Aw, poor Jetsam! Will he ever recover?!

Christopher Walken! Sign me up - I'll see anything he's in.
(Note: I never did nominate him as Knitter's Hunk, did I? Hmmm.)

I thought surely by now we would see you Pickled ;) What's the deal????

Poor Jetsam ~ that dog does look the eager to play type. Hope no fur flew in this movie ~ I hate violence.

BTW, if you haven't seen Inception we found it an intriguing flick AND congratulations on your 4th Birthday!

Aw, poor Jetsam! I hope he recovers after that extraordinarily sweet-looking doggie goes home.

LOL! Poor Jetsam. He suffers so.

Lorraine said...

Of course, Jetsam is well aware that dogs are not harmless.

Thanks for the laughs on this rainy morning. I imagine Jetsam is not the first cat to think his life might be perfect material for the Coen brothers. LOVE your casting. Genius!
