Animated Inspiration: Simon's Cat 'Window Pain'

Since I've been a little late with these blog posts, here's an added treat for this month: a new Simon's Cat.

When I watched this the first time, I started to get that feeling of 'been there done that' when the cat pointed to his mouth and did the whole 'feed me' bit. I had fallen into the trap of believing that the ending was going to be anti-climactic, so the presence of the kitten was unexpected and left me with a great laugh. I can't help but think that Simon Tofield planned this little 'gotcha' from the start. Much like playing with a cat using a laser pointer, Tofield led us right where he wanted us to go when setting up the final gag.
