    Scenes of violence include a villainous guard using a cattle prod to electrocute heroes, and a cat eating a bird. A cat also uses food-stuffs to fight his rivals, firing meatballs and sprinkling chilli flakes in their eyes.

    Threat and horror

    Scenes include a villainous cat threatening heroes with her claws, an extended sequence of a cat avoiding cheese-related dangers like a giant grater, and an action set on a fast-moving train. However, the action is often fantastical, stylised, broken-up with moments of comedy and ends reassuringly. In one sequence, characters jump onto a moving train.


    There is use of very mild bad language (‘butt’).

    Rude humour

    There are comic kisses and references to dating. A character lands in a pile of manure, and there are references to a pound being ‘stinky’.


    A theme of the film is the estranged relationship between a father and son. There is a reassuring ending, but brief references are made to feeling rejected and abandoned.
