This is the jazzy story of a hip, saxaphone-playing cat who heads to the big city to seek fame and fortune. Once there he finds that the top dogs own the cool clubs, and that sometimes you have to work at the Doggie Diner to make ends meet. But he also learns how important it is to "do what you love and do it well!"
