The animated series “Sagwa, the Chinese Siamese Cat” is set in China during the late Qing dynasty, around 1895-1912. It revolves around the life of Sagwa, a royal family cat with the ability to write with her tail, and her day-to-day adventures and learning experiences. The show is known for its intentional cross-cultural approach, featuring messages about family obligations, loyalty, and valuable life lessons.
