A search for sanity in a cat-obsessed world

The cat is the world’s most popular pet – and the most disposable. Some 100 million cats, domestic and wild, roam the North American landscape causing havoc to native flora and wildlife. From the time of the Pharaohs, human beings have been fascinated with the elusive nature of cats. Millions of us keep cats close to us and love them precisely because they never seem to let us get too close. Millions of free-roaming hunting cats means millions more kittens and a billion fewer birds. Cat Crazed celebrates our love affair with cats and encourages a new relationship with our most popular pet – one where all cats are loved and none are abandoned. Cat Crazed marries documentary storytelling with animation to deftly straddle the line between send-up and serious journalism.
