I challenge anyone to watch the first few episodes and not binge the rest. It's that addicting, and why not? It's very cute, the characters are terribly enjoyable, the minimal art style is a joy and every episode tells a very relatable and adorable tale as to why cats are vexing.

We're introduced to every cat and how the family came to be, and with every episode, we also get a glimpse to the owner's personality. Every cat is a one-note character sure, but they're cats. It suits them well.

I think it's also important to note that I'm a dog person.
