Telling a story is a way to share meaning. How the story is relayed is the choice of the author, but it is crafted with an audience in mind and constructed so that all the pieces are integral to the whole. Together they make the story complete; anything more is extraneous, anything less is incomplete.
This snippet contain all the pieces that make a short story engaging for a human viewer: intro, dénoument, build, crisis and ending.
Perhaps even more interesting is that the cats were not working from a script.
