The Cat Piano

When this was first linked to me (Thank you Francis!) I saw the title, The Cat Piano, saw it was an animation, and made the totally incorrect judgment that this was going to be some student film with weak humor and moments of good animation. I laugh at weird cat pictures, I post them here all the time, but I don’t recall ever taking story telling about such furry creatures in fantasy tales seriously. I am not pleased by the depths of my ignorance. Please enjoy this chilling and beautiful short film which I am now a fan of.
