Cold Cat (animated short)
A freezing cat seeks the warmth of a woman, but ends up having to rely on city infrastructure. Along the way, there's a bit of Gangnam Style, a hot-tub scene of sorts, and a very brief bedroom dalliance.

This is "episode 2" of Franklin the Ladies' Cat, a series of stand-alone shorts I'm working on. The first short is here. If you enjoy these, please help me spread the word. If you have constructive feedback, I'd love to hear it!
Role: Animator/Director

Haha. Only slightly disturbing. Do you do the voice? It's a great voice. Well done.

Thanks, Glinn! Yes, I do the voice. A funny thing about it is that a lot of friends and people I know have said "I love that voice you do! It's so funny." But, like... basically, that's my voice.

I'm not doing anything with it, other than having a certain subtle attitude and saying certain words. I think people feel it works so well because it's a natural voice. In the past, I've tried to "do" a voice, and I decided that for this character, it would be great to have a straight-up kind of voice with no forced "weirdness" about it.

I'm really happy with the effect, the only problem now is that probably all my future animated characters will have this voice...

I love this so much. And I think your instinct about the voice is exactly right - a huge part of what makes it work so well is that it really isn't "doing a voice."
