Storyline

There was a Cat. And she had a big house with expensive furniture. Often, her poor kittens nephews came to the doorstep of this house, asking her for food and lodging for the night, but she chased them away through her servant, the janitor cat Vasiliy. Once the neighbors came to visit her: the Rooster, the Chicken, the Goat, the Nanny-Goat and the Pig. The Cat welcomed the guests and showed them her home. While the guests were having fun, the kittens came to ask for shelter again, but the Cat kicked them out again. When the guests returned home, a log fell out of the stove and a fire started in the house. Written by Peter-Patrick76 (peter-patrick@mail.com)

A really great film!
11 November 2010 | by vawlkee_2000See all my reviews

"Koshkin House" was indeed produced in the former soviet union but it has a lesson for everyone. A well to do cat lives with her man servant in a beautiful house. She has the neighbors over for a night of entertainment and impresses the hell out of them - negatively! Meanwhile two orphan kittens keep coming to the house asking for help but are chased away repeatedly. After her "friends" leave the festivities the house burns, making the cat and her servant homeless. The two of them go to their so-called "friends" residences asking for shelter and are rebuffed by all of them. On the verge of freezing to death the cat and her servant come across a little shack and ask for shelter... Are they in for the surprise of their lives! No spoiler here.
