    After an unfortunate encounter in the garden, Simon’s Cat goes to great lengths to avoid an imminent visit to the vet. As always, the question remains - will his long-suffering owner Simon step up to the challenge?

    After a successful crowdfunding campaign in 2014 to make a longer film, ‘Simon’s Cat: Off to the Vet' became the first 12 minute Simon's Cat film to be produced in full colour.

    A HUGE thank you to all our Indiegogo Supporters. This film would not have been possible without you!

    ‘Simon’s Cat: Off to the Vet’ has screened at multiple film festivals around the world and was awarded The McLaren Award for Best British Animation at the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2016.

    Q. What's the background of 'Off to the Vet'?
    A. ‘Off to the Vet’ film production and crowdfunding campaign was a huge undertaking for the Simon’s Cat Team. Our hope is to produce more long form, full colour content for our fans but without having to turn to them through crowdfunding again. The film was completed in 2015 and submitted it to a selection of international film festivals over the following months. During this time, it was exclusively available to all funders that contributed via our private production blog. The feedback we have received from our funders has been overwhelming positive and we hope they are extremely proud of making the film a possibility. If you are a funder and have any questions regarding the campaign, please contact us at

    Q. What software do you use?
    A. Simon's Cat is made using Adobe Flash / TV Paint / CelAction animation software.

    Q. Why does it take so long to make each Simon's Cat film?
    A. Even though the films are made on computer software, they are still hand-animated in a traditional manner, frame to frame. It usually takes between 12 and 25 drawings to create 1 second of a Simon's Cat film.

    Q. Where can I buy Simon’s Cat merchandise?
    A. You can purchase Simon's Cat products from the official webshop:
