Hate to break it to you, cat-owners, but the filmmakers behind the Netflix documentary Inside the Mind of the Cat have been spying on us. How else could they know about my frequent and embarrassing Google searches, demanding the cat experts of the world to tell me: Does my cat love me?
In his film, Inside the Mind of the Cat—an hour-long documentary that began streaming on Thursday—director Andy Mitchell has gathered feline professionals in an attempt to answer that, along with other burning questions cat owners have. It’s a movie that knows its audience, and it’s certainly a must-watch for anyone with a camera roll dedicated to capturing their furry friend. You’ll be cooing from the very first shot of a particularly adorable floof, and nodding your head emphatically as various cat people wax poetic about how cats aren’t unfriendly—they are simply misunderstood. (Perhaps the most hilarious part of the film is the implication that even Simon Cowell, displaying his signature skepticism over a cat-centered act on America’s Got Talented, learned to love the animals when he gave them a chance.)
The experts interviewed in the film include the director of the Cornell Feline Health Center, Dr. Bruce Kornriech; an associate professor at Unity College and “cat psychologist” Dr. Kristyn Vitale; a cat researcher at Azabu University Dr. Saho Takagi; and Ukrainian cat trainers Maryna and Svitlana Savitzky. You’ll get answers to questions like why cats always land on their feet, why your kitty gets the zoomies after you’ve gone to bed, and whether your cat knows their own name. You’ll learn that your furry friend can run up to 30 mph, can jump as high as five or six times their height, and is one of the few animals in the world who use 100 percent of their muscles when they jump. Who’s Momma’s very special little boy?!
You’ll also get a crash course in the history of the evolution of the housecat-human relationship, which, we’ve recently learned—thanks to a recent discovery of a cat skeleton in a child’s grave on the island of Cyprus—dates back at least 10,000 years. And, perhaps most importantly, you’ll get these experts’ opinions on that burning question we all want to know: Do our cats love us as much as we love them? (Don’t worry. Most of the experts say yes.)
In short, it’s a delightful film that is sure to tickle any cat owner. Don’t wait to sink your claws into this one.
