The cat Mour meets his relatives (2014)
Even the most ordinary cat has a drop of lion's blood! A popular educational, and entertaining series about wild cats of all sizes, whose blood flows through the body of even the most ordinary house pet. We learn about typical cat skills and habits, the unexpected fancies of each species and their specific skills that used to be considered magical by some civilizations that have disappeared. Have you ever seen a cat catch fish? Is the cheetah really the fastest runner in the world? Which cat kept the Prophet Muhammad company? And how did the white lion happen to become the Czech national symbol? If you don't know the answers, you don't have to be ashamed. Mour the Cat doesn't know either. That's why he's set off to find his relatives.
