How did this video make you feel?

How strong was your emotion at the time?


When the kinkajou climbed into the woman’s blouse, where was she sitting?

When the small dog hitched a ride on the dust mop, what color was the mop?


One dog was intent on pushing something. What was he pushing?

What was the cat terrorizing?


The sleeping white cat fell off of what?

A kitten climbed into a man’s clothing. What clothing?


In the same scene, what was sitting on the floor next to the man?

What part of his body did the cat light on fire?


Where was he when he started on fire?
