Synopsis: Marc Antony the bulldog is distracted from his construction yard watchdog job by an adorable kitten and a thieving alley cat.

Cartoon Cats: Pussyfoot returns once again and is found after rolling from a garbage can in a bag.  It’s hard to believe anyone would throw such an adorable kitten away!

Marc Antony sets Pussyfoot down to sleep on a girder and gives her a sausage from his lunchpail.  He is rewarded with a kiss.

About this time the yellow cat who is sometimes named Claude in these shorts shows up with his eye on the sausage prize.

At least in this short Claude is more intent on stealing the sausage than hurting Pussyfoot, although the kitten’s welfare walking around high above the ground does not concern him.

Kitty Carnage Warning! Once again Claude takes the brunt of the violence, although one can argue it is justly deserved since he is trying to steal Pussyfoot’s sausage.
