Directed by: Edward Killy
Synopsis: Dr. Bertram Simms (Guy Kibbee) is a small town veterinarian whose family inherits the large estate of his uncle and move to the big city, little realizing that the uncle was the head of a large crime syndicate.
Purr Blurs: In the beginning of the film a small dog limps into Dr. Simm’s veterinarian clinic, followed a moment later by Chet (Gordon Jones), the boyfriend of Dr. Simms’ daughter. As they talk we are shown a line of cages with animals inside and in the lower left corner is a cat.
Later when Dr. Simms and his family move into the big estate he secretly opens a practice in the pool house. Just after his wife Elizabeth (Cora Witherspoon) finds this out, Dr. Simms and Chet have a talk and once again you can just barely see a cat in a cage in the background.
Final Mewsings: Unfortunately cats play second fiddle to dogs and even a penguin in this film!
