Ha ha yeah I'd have to agree. The computer generated killer cats scene was a bit out of left field.

Yeah I hear ya. Although I have to agree with a post on imdb
from someone who wished it would have been a straight
-ahead coming of age love story.
Eli was such a pretty & enchanting young girl (and I mean that in the uttermost nonsexual way)
, and for all intents and purposes her character and the actress who portrayed Eli were infact female, even though her voice was over-dubbed to make her character appear more androgynous.
It just seemed unecessary and didn't really add anything to the film for me, especially since the director chose not to film a scene (which involved the castration of a pig)
that would have shed some light on Eli's back-story.
