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.

It was fun to reconnect with Chi the last time around in her own environment but also to really throw something different into it with the other cats that snuck into the house. The whole bit of going after Flutter was cute and how Chi became protective of her worked well. But it’s still a big contrast from what we’ve seen lately with Come-Come and it takes a little bit of an adjustment to get into things. With this episode, the focus is out in the park as Chi is trying to catch the pigeons and basically making a callout on Blackie that he hasn’t helped her figure out how to do it. So that has Old Lady Calico coming into play to help as she offers up some advice.
Of course, everything that Calico teachers her at first are things that Blackie already did but that Chi has forgotten because Chi is Chi. With Blackie watching from a hidden spot to the side, it’s amusing to watch as Calico goes kind of big and silly with how she hunts up and scares pigeons, causing plenty of sweatdrops coming from Blackie. Calico has a pretty aggressive approach overall to going after pigeons and it’s fun to watch her fronting as much as she does here and for Chi to be so wide-eyed and interested – especially when they play at being still to lure in the pigeons. So much so that they actually fall asleep in doing so, which really gets Blackie frustrated because he sees all of his hard work just disappearing in front of his eyes. And even more so when they end up being distracted by other things…
With most episodes focusing on Blackie teaching Chi and often Come-Come as well, it’s definitely fun to see how it works with Old Lady Calico. And that’s really it, it just becomes a fun time for both of them as they train and practice, get distracted, and then actively ignore pigeons because there are far shinier objects out there to get into. You do feel for Blackie pretty well in all of this as he’s wanting them to really get their act together and get the job done – though the show always hedges just enough when it comes to what real success would look like with it.
