The story is about a Cambot (camera robot) sheltering three street cats from snow to get through a cold winter night.
There were many wild cats living in a garden near my apartment building in Shanghai. Really friendly and curious fellas, and I used to feed them every now and then. But we had a cold winter last year and a lot of small kitties died due to the coldness and starvation. Also some of them were injured because of abuses and accidents. I was quite frustrated by the this and decided to do a piece about animal welfare.
The idea behind this is simple: please be nice to street animals, and do not abandon your pets.
