For those who utterly abhor those cute kitty videos on YouTube... well, you may just have to let this one through your defences. Toben Seymour returns to musicvideoland with a puppet version of Aesop Rock, and his adorable feline companion. And its as cute as hell.

The song is about Aesop's cat Kirby – played here by Dina, a rescue cat from downtown LA, who keeps puppet Aesop company in his apartment as he tries to work through some issues, on the advice of his therapist.

It's a relatively simple song in terms of Aesop's ouevre, and a simple video is the perfect complement to that. Just a puppet, his kitten and a camera. Aw.
