My daughter and I are so, so excited to see the much talked about movie of the summer – The Secret Life of Pets.

Have you seen the television ads for it? Oh my – it looks hilarious! I just don’t know if we will be able to wait until July 8th for its release. The Secret Life of Pets comes from the studio that brought you Despicable Me and Minions, so you know it has to be good!

We often wonder what our pets do when we aren’t home, and this movie just might give us an idea. We do know that one of our kitties, Kaiser, knows how to open kitchen drawers, cabinets and pocket doors (yes, pocket doors!). He is really something. We also know that they taunt each other. Of course, with all of the Tom-foolery, comes lots and lots of love, as evidenced below:

In case you haven’t seen the trailer yet, I am happy to show it to you:

For their fifth fully-animated feature-film collaboration, Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures present The Secret Life of Pets, a comedy about the lives our pets lead after we leave for work or school each day.

Comedy superstars Louis C.K., Eric Stonestreet and Kevin Hart make their animated feature-film debuts in The Secret Life of Pets, which also features comedy superstars Jenny Slate, Ellie Kemper, Lake Bell, Dana Carvey, Hannibal Buress, Bobby Moynihan, Steve Coogan and Albert Brooks. Illumination founder/CEO Chris Meledandri and his longtime collaborator Janet Healy produce the film which is directed by Chris Renaud (Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2), co-directed by Yarrow Cheney and written by Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio and Brian Lynch.

Stay tuned, because next week I will be hosting a giveaway for The Secret Life of Pets!
