Private life of a cat

The private life of cats. There is no sound and it’s a 22 minute video but well worth the time.

Private Life of a Cat is an intimate observation of two cats- originally created by Alexander Hammid, in 1947 (on 16mm B/W film, as a silent movie).

It stars a male cat (the white one), and a female cat; observing on film the complete birth and growth of their five kittens.

It is awesome to watch the miracle of birth, let alone the inspiration derived from discovering a non-dysfunctional cat family…

Right down to the dad cat teaching the kittens to climb a scratching post.
