This video was also filmed in the Great Smoky Mountains, and it features lots of birds visiting a feeder.

Chipmunk Versus Corn Cob

Chipmunks are determined creatures, especially when it comes to food. So, when these chipmunks take on a huge ear of corn, you’re in for some fun entertainment. With leaps and jumps and plenty of energy, these feisty chipmunks make the most of their meal, set against a beautiful forest backdrop. This movie is sure to appeal to both cats and dogs, but it’s also an entertaining watch for the humans in your household.

Before you leave your cat home alone with a cat movie on, make sure your TV is secured to the wall or within an entertainment center. Some cats may be tempted to get right up in front of the screen and bat at the animals they see, which might knock your TV over. To be safe, you might want to be on hand to supervise your cat the first few times you show these movies. Once you know you can trust her not to get too into the TV viewing, you can leave these movies on when you go out to run errands or go to work for the day.
