The Making of ‘Off to the Vet – and Other Cat-astrophes’ Book OUT NOW


I’m Simon, and I am just putting finishing touches to my new book ‘Simon’s Cat Off to the Vet and other Cat-astrophes’ I’ve always wanted to do a vet book, Because at some point we all have to take our cats to the vet, and there is such rich picking there for comedy, even though it’s such a stressful time for the cat and the owner. One of the challenges for me is to actually pluck out some of those comedy moments that we can all relate to, being cat owners. The main chunk of the book is the cat being taken to the vet and all the trouble he get’s up to, when he gets out and meets all the other inmates at the vets, but there is also a large chunk of the book to do with the garden, new creatures and a new neighbour that he meets and other adventures. Well, I’ve created lots more characters in this book, that are all brand new and people have never seen before. I had great fun developing the angry neighbour character, who is a very keen gardener and obviously doesn’t take to the cat going through his garden and I think there is loads in here that a lot of Simon’s Cat fans will love. which allows me to put loads more character into those drawings and the backgrounds and get those extra details, and of course, some of the animals are crying out to be coloured. You got the colourful Cockatoo with his yellow plume and the little cute hamster with his sort of white belly and his little white face and the rabbits, so it’s nice to get a bit of colour included in the book. Well, I also like to get loads of variety in my books, so I do this by having some really simple images, which are basically comic strip forms, which tell a little tiny story, then there is others, which are full of detail, so again they have their own charm and hidden things to find so it makes the book more interesting, I think, to have these different types of kind of pages and things to enjoy. We had a great time creating this book, and I think there is loads in here that a lot of Simon’s Cat fans will love. But you don’t have to be a Simon’s Cat fan. There is loads of slapstick gags in here that anyone can enjoy.

  2. I live in Cusco and i don`t know how to buy your books!, i love your work! I am a cat lover <3 ! and I feel totally identified with everything you narrate..! That remenbered me funny moments with my cat..!

  3. I love Simon's cat, but i have to be honest….(vet scene, If hamsters WERE that big our cat would NEVER have ever gotten through two in one sitting !!)

  4. I love your videos!!! I named my cat Simon because I thought at first that the name of the cat was Simon lol… Do you have any store on the US… I really want to buy the 2016 calendar and the diary and a lot of things hehe … but the $20 on shipping discourages me… PLEASE LET ME KNOW… Thanks

  5. I just love all of your videos so much that I can't get enough of them and I love laughing to all of your videos. I have one of your book sitting on my book shelve in my room.

  6. Thank you very much. I, and to much like your creativity. Such attention to emotions and trifles is praiseworthy. Coincidence to real situations simply admires. It is very lovely, and it is amusing. Good luck to you, thanks, and all kind.

    Большое спасибо. Мне, и многим нравится ваше творчество. Такое внимание эмоциям и мелочам достойно похвалы. Совпадение с реальными ситуациями просто восхищает. Это очень мило, и забавно. Удачи вам, спасибо, и всего доброго.

  7. I toke my cat to the vet and he bite me. I tryed my best at tricking the cat. I hide, the cat goes in the cat cage, I zoomed to the cat cage and close the cat cage quickly and then I done it.

  8. my book arrived a few days ago and I'm still looking through it chuckling 🙂 I especially like the evil neighbour cartoons….

  9. Ваш рассказ о книге не менее интересен самих "Историй о коте Симона". Поведение кота Симона очень реалистично и живо во всех сериях. Если надо поднять себе настроение всегда смотрю хоть одну. Вы с ним лучшие ! : )

  10. Off to the vet will only be a 12min clip??? Wasn't it ment to be in the cinemas one day as a full movie? Waiting day by day since so long for theannouncements in my local cinemas to buy some tickets.

  11. I understand how tough animation is, and the frame by frame, but $250,000 and a few years for 12 minutes by a team? Crazy.

  12. Lolz sucks for you my cats r sooo good in the car, they actually enjoy it!!!!! They roam around the car and they sit in our laps in the office. Our cats r really chill

  13. Screw this I did contribute my money to the production. I NEVER RECEIVED ANY NOTIFICATION. This has become a rip off.

  14. I have the first and second books and my favorite drawing are those that happen in the garden, because I love countryside and the different animals of the campaign. Also it is full of details. I am a French fan.

  20. The charm of your cat is that you have him act like a cat.
    Lately you've been humanizing him a little.
    Please don't?! I loved Garfield when he acted like a cat, then lost interest when his creator "humanized" him. Thank-you.
    ~ a fan.

  21. Looked it up in my amazon app. And was greeted with the message that "this mobile application does not currently support digital downloads". 😕

  22. I ADORE Simons cat and cant wait to buy your book. Ive already bought a sweatshirt and a few tshirts and other various items. Still waiting for them to deliver.
