In this home, a litter of kittens are wandering around with their mother nowhere to be found. Instead, the dog of the house becomes the babysitter of the litter. To prevent the babies from wandering too far away, the ‘step dog’ chases after each kitten and brings them back to the soft, round cushion. First, he grabs a kitten wandering down the stairs and returns the baby back to safety. He continually chases the kittens that are wandering away; the step dog picks them up by the back of their necks and carries them back to the cushion.
Despite the dog’s efforts to rally the babies in one spot, they all leave the cushion as soon as they’re put in. The black and white kitten seems to be the most rebellious of the litter. He resists the dog’s attempt to pick him up, and runs away as soon as he’s brought to the cushion. Maybe the step dog thinks it’s time for the kittens to take a nap, but the babies seem to disagree. According to the kittens, it’s time to play and explore their new home.
