Cats Don’t Come When You Call (Blu-ray release 2016-7-13) is adapted from an autobiographical manga, about a guy who had to abandon his boxing career due to an eye injury.  His elder brother moved away, leaving him alone with two cats.  Naturally, the cats become his most important companion, and eventually inspired him in facing the difficulties of life.

This movie is really focused on the cats and the human-cat relationship, more so than I expected.  There is also less human melodrama than I thought.  Perhaps it does not deviate too much from the true story.  Cat lovers will love this movie.  For others, if we (unfairly) ignore the cats part of the movie and only consider the human side, it is pretty ordinary by movie standards.
