What They Say:
Chi is a sweet playful kitten, always full of energy. She gets milk from Yohei, and is relaxing at home, nice and full. As she searches around the house for something exciting, she comes across Yohei walking with a handful of rubber balls. The balls bounce everywhere as he drops them, and Yohei and Chi can’t get more excited. The day ends with Chi and the family making a great memory together.

Getting back into the Chi series with its second season was a lot of fun since it focused on the homefront and the family. Bringing in a new member with a goldfish definitely changed the balance of things in Chi’s mind and just watching it unfold was very cute as the obsessive behavior really got underway. With this episode, the second season gets us back outdoors as Chi heads to the park and, surprise, surprise, meets her first pigeon. Birds that exist in parks like this aren’t like other birds since they’re figuring out people and local animals in a way that lets them co-exist for the most part. Something that Chi just isn’t ready for.
With a gaggle of pigeons about, giving them some numbers, Chi gets a little help with Come-Come arriving. Who, naturally, puts on a big show about how easy they are to deal with while not having any real record in taking any of them down. Suffice to say, the show spends its time working that dynamic well with the two kittens doing their best to get a pigeon, pigeons who come really flaunt how at ease they are when not being chased. It’s almost like they own the place! Blackie, however, has a lot more experience with birds over the years and shows off his catching skills – which don’t kill since that would be bad in this show. Blackie’s training is fun and watching the kittens do their best makes for a lot of cute bits, especially since the pigeons are almost always one step ahead.
Having the younger cats hunt here is a bit of a dicey proposition since you have to balance it against them actually catching and killing them, which wouldn’t work for a kids show – even though it might be the right thing to do. Mostly, it becomes a fun episode with Blackie providing his trademark training style to get Chi and Come-Come up to speed to handle it. I continue to like the dynamic between the three and introducing the colorful and snarky-like pigeons here with how they react is delightful.
