Woah, that was amazing.
I loved how cute the cat was.
I didn't really see this as a message or anything like that and I've refrained from reading the Author's comments so I can have an opinion of how I felt towards this flash without being told what it all meant, if anything.
Well not much really! Haha, a cat fishing to survive which I thought was pretty cool.
The animation was supreme, now I'm talking like Bitey level, perhaps even more dynamic! Your use of the camera was amazing and personally don't agree with other user's views that it 'moved/shooked too much' but that's just, like, my opinion man.
Music was very fitting and nice to listen to.
I was a little sad that the cat seemed to almost accept that he'd never outrun the water or something. That's the feeling I got when he turned to look at the huge incoming wave.
After reading the Author's comments you've not written about any underlying themes so I guess it's up to the viewer to make of it what they will. That's fine with me.
The animation pretty much forced me to five star this, but that's not to take away from the other aspects of the flash. It was great overall.
Look forward to more of your work, definitely favourited.
