The Cat Visitor

Circular icon with two abstract cats

The Cat Visitor is a handdrawn charcoal animation made by me somewhere in 2014. Every frame is individually drawn on white paper and scanned to a computer to process it.

 

I read a story about a cat in an elderly home who would visit patients that would die the coming day or night. It would cuddle up against them and leave before the patient passed away. Could this cat sense incoming death? I don't know, but I do know it inspired me to create a very short film.
