At the beginning of the film, Milo is seen as a very young kitten, perhaps three weeks old, nursing from his mother. When Otis the puppy scrambles up to their nest in the barn, a curious Milo topples over the side of the nest and the two animals meet for the first time. Strangely, from the moment he topples out of the nest to the moment when he lands next to Otis, Milo has aged at least a month! See more »


Narrator: Otis resumed his search for Milo. He saw in the distance an animal that he thought might be helpful.
Fox: [singing and swimming in a creek] Deeya-da da da dat da, deya-da datta da... Eeyo edata da, de do doo datta-da.
[Otis runs down the hill]
Fox: Eeya dat-datta da!
[continues singing, climbs out of creek]
Fox: Oh... ah! Gah...
[shakes water off]
Fox: Ooh, that's better.
[proceeds to jump in meadow]
Otis: Excuse me! I'm looking for a friend of mine!

Kitten Snuff Movie -VERY DISTURBING ANIMAL ABUSE - don't show this to your kids
18 August 2012 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Throwing kittens off a cliff for entertainment? I couldn't believe my eyes. Shocking. I wonder how many cats died making that particular shot. The animal abuse in this movie is so apparent, it's amazing this got aired at all.

My girlfriend and me tried to watch this, hoping for a sweet movie; we own a pug and kitten, we did not know what was in store for us. The rest of the night we will spend comforting our pets, they are in a state of shock!

I would love to put the people making money of this through the same horrors they put the animals through.

Great movie if you hate cats.
