Cat Soup (a.k.a. Nekojiru-Sou) is a multiple award-winning animated short film directed by Tatsuo Sato and inspired by the work of the late manga artist Chiyomi "Nekojiru" Hashiguchi.

It centers around a family of anthropomorphic cats, specifically two kittens: the terminally ill Nyako and her younger brother Nyatta. After Nyako dies, Nyatta manages to reclaim half of her soul from Jizou. This brings her back to life, but leaves her brain-dead. Determined to return his sister back to normal, Nyatta goes on a surreal journey through the land of the dead to retrieve the other half. Or something.

Not to be confused with Neko Ramen.
