Simon Tofield is a cat person, and boy, does he know everything that comes with being an owner of one such feline.
The fun times and mishaps of cat ownership are the focus of his YouTube channel, Simon’s Cat. It sports more than a hundred different web cartoons for viewers to watch (and perhaps even relate to). From the incessant scratching on everything except the scratching post to having to constantly step over the cat as it sleeps on the steps, this animated cat causes a lot of mayhem.
Tofield’s cartoons are funny, enjoyable shorts and feature situations to which pet owners will likely be able to relate. One video warns against overfeeding your pet. And in general, viewers can enjoy the videos without needing to worry about content within them.
There is very little content to be concerned about on the channel. The cat’s anus is depicted by a dot on its rear. We’ll see slapstick humor, such as when the cat uses a baseball bat to wake its owner, or when it throws objects at Simon to avoid his grasp. The cat urinates on Simon in one web cartoon. One video’s title will bring to mind a common crass saying (but is in itself just fine). The channel’s merchandise website sells items related to horoscopes.
Simon’s Cat is the modern-day equivalent of opening the newspaper to the funny pages for your favorite comic artist. We found only minor hairballs to be concerned about with this web cartoon, and it’ll be especially relatable to pet owners.
Though he was born in Kansas, Kennedy Unthank studied journalism at the University of Missouri. He knew he wanted to write for a living when he won a contest for “best fantasy story” while in the 4th grade. What he didn’t know at the time, however, was that he was the only person to submit a story. Regardless, the seed was planted. Kennedy collects and plays board games in his free time, and he loves to talk about biblical apologetics and hermeneutics. He doesn’t think the ending of Lost was “that bad.”
