Q. Why isn’t ‘Off to the Vet’ available in full on YouTube?
A. ‘Off to the Vet’ film production and crowdfunding campaign was a huge undertaking for the Simon’s Cat Team. Our hope is to produce more long form, full colour content for our fans but without having to turn to them through crowdfunding again. The film was completed in 2015 and submitted it to a selection of international film festivals over the following months. During this time it was exclusively available to all funders that contributed via our private production blog. The feedback we have received from our funders has been overwhelming positive and we hope they are extremely proud of making the film a possibility.
Q. What software do you use?
A. Simon’s Cat is made using Adobe Flash / TV Paint animation software.

Q. Why does it take so long to make each Simon’s Cat film?
A. Even though the films are made on computer software, they are still hand-animated in a traditional manner, frame to frame. It usually takes between 12 and 25 drawings to create 1 second of a Simon’s Cat film.

Q. Where can I buy Simon’s Cat merchandise?

  13. If my cat did all of this in 1 day, he’d spend the whole day locked in the bathroom.

  14. Can Anybody tell me why the cat food looks appetizing to me and I mean the animated kind not the real kind!

  15. Uploaded on my birthday! .w.

  16. Seems just about right. Except that first clock reading should be “4:48am” instead of “6:46am”.

  17. Just about every time the Cat meowed for several seconds straight, my own cat (currently sitting on my lap) responded, and she is now staring at me.

  18. isnt this just a compilation of other, older videos?
