At the House of Cats, those felines who are cursed to become humans when the moon enters Leo find a safe haven between two worlds. But the House has fallen into disrepair; the cat who should be leading them has run away. She dreams of being a chef, of living as a human all the time (or at least six days a week).
Meanwhile, a battle-scarred tom has stepped into the power vacuum left when the old queen died and the new queen disappeared. But he has been running too, using drugs to remain a cat always and cutting the denizens of the House off from the outside world.
Can these two opposites band together and unite the cats to restore the House to its former glory? Or will a greedy developer and a bunch of nosy neighbors drive the cats from their home?
