As a documentary filmmaker, Derek was curious about what his cat, Gonzo, got up to every day, so he put a tiny spycam on his collar. Gonzo never brings anything but trash home.
He feels the need to bring home gifts, and it is always whatever he can find around the area. Gonzo likes retrieving plastic, and he found a whole pot of dried flowers once.
There was one day when Gonzo brought home ten trash gifts. It was funny because Derek was trying to work, and Gonzo showed up meowing every few minutes.
The footage of Gonzo’s adventures was an enlightening window into his mind. Derek got to see how Gonzo interacted with other animals. When Gonzo ran into some baby possums, Derek got worried.
Then Derek saw that Gonzo was just peacefully hanging out with them. Gonzo’s most interesting relationship is with another cat named Simone. She used to be a street cat, and Gonzo is infatuated with her.
He is always trying to bring her trash gifts, but she isn’t appreciating any of his affection. When he tries to get close to Simone, she will push him away.
It’s heartbreaking for Derek to see Gonzo be rejected, but he learned how sweet Gonzo truly was. He is a special cat, and Derek is glad he can see what he’s up to every day.
