The official description of “Kitbull” from Pixar is straightforward: Two creatures, a free-spirited stray cat and a pit bull, establish an odd friendship. They had their first encounter with friends while they were together.

What they don’t tell you ahead of time is that the pit bull is being abused, and the sincerity of abused and rescued dogs is shown so beautifully and brilliantly that you couldn’t stop crying.

YouTube Comments revealed a lot about the user experience as they watched Kitbull.
