Animator Simon Tofield is back with the latest installation of Simon’s Cat, the YouTube cartoon series that perhaps best captures the trials and tribulations of owning a cat. It may even hit a little too close for some viewers — your author included — for whom the utterly one-of-a-kind sensation of being actively scaled by the clawed limbs of a thing you are just trying to give food to* remains an all too fresh recollection. Rest assured, though, cat owners, that your beloved pet’s mealtime antics never mean they don’t love you. They just love food about a million times more than they’re even capable of loving you. For those of you who may be wounded by this fact, I would remind you that it’s a cat. You knew what this was.
*OK, that may not be a one-of-a-kind sensation. Babies, for example, may do that, too, but they’re way worse at climbing things than cats, because babies don’t have claws, thank goodness for small miracles.

- Simon’s Cat is certainly adorable, but in real life, it’s a cold-blooded killing machine
- If you let your cat learn to box, frankly, you’re just asking for trouble
- If you teach it to DJ, however? Mad respect.
