The cat that walks alone
M y wife and I own two cats. Jude is an all-black moggie with a strong splash of Burmese prince. We wanted one cat, not two, but when the time came to extract Mickey from his cage, Jude leapt into view and rolled about with Mickey in a manner that was playful and affectionate. I knew then that Jude was something special. I still joke that he planned the whole thing, hitching a ride into the future on the back of Mickey; I told him so as he was placed in my hands. He turned his head and met my gaze. I swear he winked.

Kipling, R. Kipling, Rudyard. Lit2Go Edition. September 25, Hear and attend and listen; for this befell and behappened and became and was, O my Best Beloved, when the Tame animals were wild. The Dog was wild, and the Horse was wild, and the Cow was wild, and the Sheep was wild, and the Pig was wild—as wild as wild could be—and they walked in the Wet Wild Woods by their wild lones. But the wildest of all the wild animals was the Cat.

Like the earlier Soviet animated feature Adventures of Mowgli , the film retains the dark, primal tone of Kipling's work. The production includes almost all types of animation technologies. It is not the only Soviet screen version of this fairy tale: in the director Aleksandra Snezhko-Blotskaya at the same studio released another animated film, "The Cat Who Walked by Himself", lasting only 20 minutes. A couple - a man and a woman - put their young child in his crib for the night and leave the room. The child starts crying, and the Cat comes into the room to keep him company. When the child grabs her tail, the Cat angrily reminds him that they agreed "a thousand years ago" that he would not do that. Upon seeing that the child doesn't remember, the Cat sighs and decides to tell him the story from the beginning.
The Dog was wild, and the Horse was wild, and the Cow was wild, and the Sheep was wild, and the Pig was wild--as wild as wild could be--and they walked in the Wet Wild Woods by their wild lones. But the wildest of all the wild animals was the Cat. He walked by himself, and all places were alike to him. Of course the Man was wild too. He was dreadfully wild. He didn't even begin to be tame till he met the Woman, and she told him that she did not like living in his wild ways.
