      There was actually a showing of kedi in a small theater in my town. It's this old refurbished place where they show some plays and free family movies from time to time. It's called the ellen. It was pretty well advertised and fairly popular. It was funny and sad and I really liked it. There were a lot of people there so I think it's safe to say the documentary reached a lot of people. All in all, good work.

      vlogbrothers @John, wrt to your video, "Old" I just had a funny thought. At this moment, you are the youngest you'll ever be. So you are not in fact old. Just saying.

                        I always wanted to be a game show host. Super odd but I thought I would rock it and I grew up in LA so it seemed practical to me, so funny I actually believed that!

                                                                  • Kio

He says one of my favorite things on earth "cat" in my native language when I don't expect it. Gotta love cats

                                                                    • Matthew Cecil

I have read countless newspapers over the past decade, and I rarely watch a video without checking the date. Very often I don't have to because of all the references to "current events" happening int he past. I be succinct, this is a great record of your life in cross sections, and your children will love these as much as the love the pages of your books, if not more. It is impossible to prepare a child for their parents death but you have an amazing library of therapy for them if ever needed.

                                                                      • Jacob Dean

I realize in this moment that it's not actually a documentary, but I have thought of it that way since seeing it because it's a real look at what those living situations are really like. You might assume that it could've been hollywooded up, but having worked in the system for a year I can personally attest to the reality of everything the kids go through in the movie. Note, I said the kids, not necessarily the workers.

Your audience is mostly American; you KNOW it'll inspire more people to let their cats roam and to support feral cat colonies. Your influence matters when you recommend a film.
