At the beginning of the film, Milo is seen as a very young kitten, perhaps three weeks old, nursing from his mother. When Otis the puppy scrambles up to their nest in the barn, a curious Milo topples over the side of the nest and the two animals meet for the first time. Strangely, from the moment he topples out of the nest to the moment when he lands next to Otis, Milo has aged at least a month! (Source:

The Adventures of Milo and Otis is a charming adventure story of two young and unlikely friends. It’s likely to appeal to the whole family. But it’s worth noting that real animals are used in this movie, so some scenes might be too intense for younger viewers. (Source: raisingchildren.net.au)

Ominous Owl: There's a scene in the treetops at nighttime where Milo talks with a horned owl with glowing eyes who pops out of nowhere. Though he is friendly, he is needless to say quite terrifying for younger children. The screech owls he warns Milo about, however, aren't quite so friendly.

Papa Wolf: More of a nuturing variety than a protective one, but when Otis is at his Darkest Hour, he imagines the consequences to Sandra and his puppies if he should just give up on hunting for food in the snowstorm. This gives him the Heroic Second Wind needed to outlast it and find food for his family. Also, combining with Mama Bear, for all that the seagulls were attacking Milo, they were doing so because Milo was looking to eat their eggs and young.

“The Adventures of Milo and Otis” has excellent developmental and moral lessons including: loyalty among friends, devotion to family, tolerance among people, and the risks of disobeying parents. It can also serve as an opportunity to talk to young children about the process of birth and the animals shown in the movie. It is a great vocabulary builder.

Jersey and Jake were best friends and loved growing up on the farm. They soon learned that every animal had a job. The dogs herded sheep; the hens laid eggs; the sheep gave wool; and the cats caught mice. Every morning, the old rooster flew to the top of the barn and made sure that everyone knew it was time to get up. The young kittens loved to hear the rooster’s call from their warm, sleepy beds; it meant the start of a new day, for playing and making discoveries. When they were about a month old and still very small, Jersey and Jake sat near the chicken coop and watched an egg that was behaving strangely. It would move and shake every once in a while and then a crack would show on the shell. Each time the egg moved, Jersey and Jake jumped backwards. They were young cats and didn’t know that a little chick was trying to get out of its egg

Jake and Jersey learned that the young chick’s name was Banty and that it would become a rooster one day. They tried to play with Banty several times, but the chick didn’t like to play in the grass, or bat balls of string back and forth. All Banty liked to do, it seemed, was to stand by its mother and poke the ground with its beak. Jake and Jersey tried this but after a few minutes they got bored and wound up chasing flies. Jersey tried to teach Banty how to keep clean, by licking and scratching, but the chick wouldn’t lick itself. Instead, Banty pecked at dirt in his feathers.

As the kittens and Banty grew older, the kittens realized that there was almost nothing they had in common with the young rooster. Sometimes they laughed at Banty because he couldn’t play the games that they played or eat food that tasted good to them. One day they even saw Banty swallowing tiny little stones. When they asked him why he would do such a thing, Banty looked at them like they were crazy.
