Ore is a very simple anime. Grandma owns many cats that go in and out as they please, and the cats make her life a bit more interesting. They have shelter and food if needed, and she gains that bit of oomph from them that makes life less bland.
But there's more to it. Sure, it has its realism like in the episode with the cat VS the cicada and how Grandma absolutely hated it. But the cat considered it a fun toy. I've experienced that with my cats. Just got to throw the suckers back outside if you can get them before the cat does.
Then there's the episode where we witness Grandma's deceased cat in her dreams and how much she misses them. How she wanted to take them back home just for them to keep walking away. I sobbed, no lie. But then her other cats came to comfort her and she was able to heal a bit more from it.
This show isn't a masterpiece or a wonder of animation. Its just a love letter between cat owners and their cats. The ups, the downs, the cicadas, and the loafing on you just because.
I really enjoyed watching several new episodes every week and now that its gone its left a fat cat sized hole in my heart. Sure, I'll fill it with a new cat anime...but this one was very sweet.
If you like animals you may like this. If you don't, this is a decent portrayal of what having a cat entails. <3
