A Movie About Wonderful Cat Lovers in Malta

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (10-10-2022) #800B: Sarah Jayne Portelli and her co-creator Ivan Malekin speak from Zagreb, Croatia about their documentary film “The Cats of Malta” which will be featured in the premiere of the 5th annual NY Cat Film Festival October 23rd at the Village East by Angelika theater. They speak to Tracie from Zagreb, Croatia, where they moved from Malta, originally having been Australians. Malta inspired them to make their film because the island has 100,000 cats and 450,00 people, and the ones dedicated to being community cat minders are delightful.
