(Worried when she spots a cat up a tree, Nana Quimby frant...)
Worried when she spots a cat up a tree, Nana Quimby frantically rings the firehouse for help, only to discover that the firemen no longer rescue cats in trees. What is she to do? She looks out the window again to discover five cats up the tree. And the cats keep coming - too many to count - in all sorts of zany colors, shapes, and sizes. Frantic, Nana Quimby calls the police station, the pet shop, the zoo, and even city hall, but no one will respond to her plea.

From an owl to an elephant, the Quimby family pets devour shoes, steal lunch, quarrel with skunks, uproot trees, and soon convince Nana that there are worse things to have than a mouse in the house.
