The likeable Mr Tibble is a good and kind man, but seems to lack the killer instinct to succeed at his job as a reporter on the town newspaper, where the editor is growing dissatisfied with his endless articles about the local cat population. Miu is a cat... or at least she was until some freak of chance changed her into a young woman, albeit a young woman who loves purring, scratching, tree-climbing and other typically catlike pursuits. When Tibble rescues Miu from an angry dog, and invites her in for a saucer of milk, both their lives are transformed. Miu exploits the feline grapevine to provide Tibble with inside information on the town's goings-on, and his career begins to take off. But when he decides to confront a powerful local businessman on behalf of the cat community his newfound confidence and determination is put to the test...
