Fun Feline Finds: Kitbull

Meows from Mudpie!

Many of you may have already watched this video because it has been all over social media the past couple weeks, but just in case you haven't we wanted to share it with you today.

Mommy finally braved watching it the other night before we went to sleep and I'm sure glad I was there with her because it made her cry. The unlikely friendship that develops between a stray kitten and an abused pit bull is sure to melt the hardest heart, so you can only imagine what it did to someone like Mommy who can cry at the drop of a hat, especially when it comes to animals!


The part that got to Mommy most were the scenes of the kitten in his box marked "fragile" cuddling up to his stuffie and making biscuits, then his pure innocence playing with the bottle cap while struggling to survive on his own. 

The short film is incredibly powerful in its beauty and simplicity. We only wish it were a full-length feature! 

If you've watched Kitbull, what part pulled at your heartstrings the most?

I know about this film but have not watched it yet. I need to feel emotionally strong because i'm sure I'll cry too.

Watching the dog sleep after being brutalized made me cry; I'll never understand why humans do this, in this day and age. Of course I wanted the kitten to find shelter and love, yet my anger over the dogfighting kinda got in the way!

I had heard about this beautiful short film, but until now, I had not been brave enough to watch it. It absolutely breaks my heart that the events in this film are also a reality, but it warms my heart that there can be happy endings such as the one in this film. Oh boy, that was a difficult yet beautiful film to watch. Thank you for sharing it and finally helping me watch it.

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

Lots of tears here too. I am glad there was a happy ending for both of them.

Herman and Dori said...

Our mom has a soft spot for pit bulls. Her niece adopted one who is a big baby. Thank goodness there was a happy ending.

TW said both times she didn't cry until the woman of color petted the pitbull.
