    "After the 'war with no name' a cat assassin searches for his
    lost love in Repino's strange, moving sci-fi epic that channels
    both Homeward Bound and A Canticle for Leibowitz.

    "The 'war with no name' has begun, with human extinction as its
    goal. The instigator of this war is the Colony, a race of
    intelligent ants who, for thousands of years, have been
    silently building an army that would forever eradicate the
    destructive, oppressive humans. Under the Colony's watchful
    eye, this utopia will be free of the humans' penchant for
    violence, exploitation and religious superstition. As a final
    step in the war effort, the Colony uses its strange technology
    to transform the surface animals into high-functioning two-
    legged beings who rise up to kill their masters.

    "Former housecat turned war hero, Mort(e) is famous for taking
    on the most dangerous missions and fighting the dreaded human
    bio-weapon EMSAH. But the true motivation behind his
    recklessness is his ongoing search for a pre-transformation
    friend-a dog named Sheba. When he receives a mysterious message
    from the dwindling human resistance claiming Sheba is alive, he
    begins a journey that will take him from the remaining human
    strongholds to the heart of the Colony, where he will discover
    the source of EMSAH and the ultimate fate of all of earth's

    Boy is it true :) My cat keeps an eye on my closet door just so she
    can get in there and play with all my stuff! She really tries to make
    a beeline for it sometimes!

    I've seen several memes with cats on Facebook, such as:

    1) The origin of Scarface. A guy is holding the cat on his lap, giving
    kitty a contented belly rub and pet, and the cat is contentedly purring.
    But, lurking behind the couch, is a mischievious kid with a paper bag,
    ready to be popped.

    2) The kitty is in bed, looking contented, then dismayed. It first said
    "Ah! Finally in Bed!!", then laments "I Have To Pee!!".

    3) The cat laughing, saying "I farted, and the dog got blamed for it!!".

    There are several others, but they escape me right now. And, the tagline below is appropriate. <G>
