When My Depression Kitty was released on DVD, it became a huge phenomenon. The Internet has flooded with merchandise, from books, t-shirts, to stuffed animals. But what’s really interesting is that the “cute” character is actually a pretty deep character. While there are plenty of witty puns and kitty references, there is also a real message in this film.
The movie begins with a story of two kittens in a house. One kitten is always trying to get attention, while the other stays alone. One day the lonely kitten goes out of his way to get pounced upon by a dog. He is so upset that he throws a fit on the floor of his cage, which gets him a lot of attention. But when the sad little creature grows up, he finds that it is much more difficult to fight his natural instincts.
In his first season, Big Mouth showed us the Pride Wizard, a giant cat who forces humans to feel bad about their emotions and feelings, and the much smaller Kitty, a pet that simply wants everybody to lean into their inner darkness. All of these were very poignant messages. It makes me wonder how many times kids have told themselves they felt like this when they were younger. The sad fact is that millions of kids do suffer from depression, and millions more may not be aware of it. The sad fact is that it affects so many people, and it affects all ages, races, and creeds.
At the beginning of the second season, Kitty was able to escape the Pride Wizard’s captivity, but he didn’t find happiness. Instead he found his lost love, an orphaned dog called Bob, whom he adopted to help raise Bob’s dog, Buddy. As a result of all of this, he developed a love for animals and took on the persona of a loving, caring person. He even got married, and after his wife left, he fell in love with a new woman named Ginger.
Ginger was a beautiful, loving woman, who also helped her husband deal with his depression. The two of them lived happily ever after. In the third season, Ginger was killed by a hit-and-run driver. Bob’s friend was charged with the crime and sent to prison. Bob and Ginger moved to Oregon to help their friend. But Ginger soon learned that she could no longer stay away from Bob, because her past had caught up to her.
In the fourth season, she returned home and met the man who would change her life forever – Depression Kitty. He immediately became a part of her family, and they quickly bonded over their love of cats. They became inseparable. She became a member of Bob’s World. They were devoted friends, and she became a faithful friend to her husband.
In the fifth season, Bob and Ginger decide to start a family. They soon decided to adopt another kitten, but Ginger discovered that depression had taken hold of her, and she was unable to bond with her husband. Eventually, the depressed cat decided to go back to the Zoo to deal with her depression.
Eventually, they decided to adopt another kitten, and the depressed cat decided to stay at the Zoo. Because of the nature of depression, she would have to work through her depression, and move on. But in the last season, she realized she couldn’t deal with life without her furry friend.
The seventh season featured Bob and Ginger trying to save the cat from the clutches of Depression Kitty. Bob and Ginger went to the zoo to look for the cat, but she escaped before they could catch her. Bob and Ginger finally succeeded in stopping her and brought the cat back home.
In the ninth season, Bob and Ginger realized that they needed to take in the depressed cat, and become her new family. They chose to adopt another kitten, named Sadie, and adopted a new mission: to make her feel at home in their home.
As the series progressed, the relationship between Bob and Ginger and Depression Kitty became more pronounced. It grew into a loving and supportive relationship. They were able to help each other cope, and heal.
