Synopsis: Alf gets in trouble when the Tanners come home to find the house a disaster and Lucky, their cat, missing, leading them to believe that Alf has finally eaten the feline.
Featured Feline: The first scene in the episode shows Alf swinging a watch back and forth in front of Lucky, coaxing him to go to sleep.
Alf tries to convince Lucky via hypnosis that he is not a cat but a bagel.
Willie (Max Wright) is shocked when he realizes what Alf has been doing. He urges Lucky to believe he is a cat and not a bagel.
Later Alf gets a bit crazy partying while the Tanners are gone and they come home to find the house a mess and Lucky gone. They immediately suspect that Alf has eaten Lucky but Alf insists he is innocent and sets out to find the missing cat.
Kitty Cameo: In one scene Alf talks to a tuxedo alley cat and shows the cat a picture of Lucky.
Cat Cattle Call: Eventually Alf ends up in the pound. He sees Lucky being brought in by a worker and then a bratty little girl (Carrie Lorraine) enters looking for a cat. There are several cats in cages in this scene.
When the girl is about to adopt Lucky (whom she’s renamed Damien) Alf runs out of the cage and grabs Lucky and escapes with him!
The Tanners return home from looking for Alf and find him waiting to reveal Lucky to them.
A moment later Willie enters with the real Lucky. The cat Alf rescued from the pound was only a look alike!
The last scene shows Alf feeding Lucky some ice cream. Alf explains to Lucky how the Tanners trust him now and how he could eat the cat without falling under suspicion but he won’t. But Alf tells Lucky not to feel too confident.
Final Mewsings: The cat from the pound was Lucky! Lucky Alf saved him from being adopted by that bratty girl!
