A young boy helps a girl heal a sick kitten in this film by George Albert Smith of 1903.
A girl sits on a high-backed chair, taking a kitten onto her lap. She rocks and strokes the kitten to comfort it. A small boy wearing an adult's top hat enters and runs off. He returns with a bottle of medicine, which he places on the table beside the girl. The camera films the girl feeding the kitten from a spoon in close-up. She shakes the young boy's hand and he tips his top hat to the camera before leaving.
