In August 2020, I lost my very elderly cat Crystal. A few months later, I was still badly missing her, and the AWA Pro deadline was approaching, so my brain started going to video ideas about cats. The idea that stuck out was Chi’s Sweet Home and how the kitten becomes a full member of the Yamada family. Pets truly are members of families, and losing one hurts just as much as losing a human member.
This is a simple and heartfelt video that has a lot of personal meaning to me, and I’m glad people seemed to pick up on that in the judging for AWA Pro 2020.
