"Inside the mind of a cat"

Saturday, February 18, 2023 - 1:00pm

This spring, The State Theatre of Ithaca is collaborating with Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine to present a public community screening of the family-friendly documentary, “Inside the Mind of a Cat”. This film explores the amazing physiology, behavior, and history that has contributed to our furry friends’ unique place in the natural world and in our lives. Through interviews with veterinarians, behavior specialists, pet therapists, and the owners of the Savitsky Cats, a trained cat act that made the quarterfinals of America’s Got Talent, we see that cats are far from the inscrutable, aloof pets that some people have come to believe they are. We are excited to be able to bring the community together for a free screening on Saturday, February 18, 2023 at The State Theatre of Ithaca. Dr. Bruce Kornreich, Director of the Cornell Feline Health Center, participated in the making of this film and will be on hand to provide a Question and Answer session after the film concludes.

Dr. Bruce Kornreich, Director of the Cornell Feline Health Center, and other feline experts took part in the production of a new documentary titled “Inside the Mind of a Cat”. This unique film examines the physiology, behavior, and history of our furry friends and their special bond with people, and is currently available for viewing on Netflix.


Red Rock Films, producer of the Emmy-winning 2021 National Geographic series “Secrets of the Whales,” invited Kornreich to participate in the project, one he says supports the center’s outreach mission to improve feline well-being through education.
