Here Come The 2017 Oscars, A Cat’s Review: Lion (the Movie)

I admit that the reason that I wanted to see the movie “Lion” was because of the name of the movie. Big cats are cats, too. As such, lions rock! So, also did the movie “Lion.”

I loved the movie (even though it was not about a big cat).  I don’t want to give away the movie plot.  But I will say that it is based on a true story.  Also, even though I wrote previously of wishing for technology that could be used to materialize cat treats on demand, I was impressed with how Google Earth was used in the movie. Being inquisitive,  I intend to check it out one day.

As for the awesomeness of this movie, it received the following 2017 Oscar nominations:

  • Best Picture
  • Best Actor in a supporting role – Dev Patel
  • Best Actress in a supporting role – Nicole Kidman
  • Best Cinematography
  • Best Music
  • Best Writing (Adapted Screenplay)

If you get the chance, you should check out both the Lion movie, and Google Earth.

If you check out either, let me know what you think.

How To Save A Life

Watching the movie Lion, which is about a human that was adopted, reminded me that there are a lot of my cat brethren out there that need to be adopted, also.

There are many shelters that have cats that are waiting for homes. If you are considering getting a cat, please consider rescuing a cat by adopting from a cat shelter.

The Humane Society of the United States estimates there are between 13 million and 87 million stray cats in the United States. Six to eight million animals are put into shelters each year.  But only 4 to 6 million go to homes.  The remaining cats get euthanized, which breaks my deep cat heart.

By adopting a rescue cat:

  1. You are saving the life of the cat that you adopt.
  2. You are making room for more cats to get into the shelters.
  3. You are improving the lives of people who have fewer stray cats in their areas.
  4. You are saving small animals who would be prey of the stray cats.

So, please consider adopting a cat.  You’ll feel great about yourself for doing so, and I’ll be proud of you.
