Where we are: Tori Tabby and Robbie are getting married. Tori’s father Davy is living with some humans who have adopted him. She wants him at the wedding, and he has said that he would be there. He is relying on his housemates, Cleo and Caesar, to hide his temporary absence from his human family so they won’t track him down.
The big day has arrived. Tori is nervous. She told her mother Teresa that Davy was coming, but there was no sign of him.She wonders if the Persians really could find a way to get him out of the house without his humans finding out.
Meanwhile, at Davy’s house, the Persians have hatched a plan.
Cleo: OK, Davy. Here’s what we’re going to do. We’re all going to go outside. Then Caesar is going to pretend to catch a squirrel and bring it to the door. Human mama is going to get upset that Caesar has a squirrel. She’ll be so preoccupied that you can get away. I’m going to run back inside while all this is going on.
Davy: That’s disgusting. I don’t want Caesar to kill a squirrel for me.
Caesar: I’m not going to kill a squirrel. That’s the genius part of the plan. Look at the new toy I got.
He shows Davy a realistic-looking squirrel toy. It barely fit in his mouth. Then he drops it.
Caesar: Pretty good, huh?
Davy: Not bad. But how is that going to help while I’m gone?
Cleo: We thought about that. You know how sometimes we play hide-and-seek with the humans? And it takes them a really long time to find us? We’re going to race around a little, and then go into hiding. When you get home, you cry at the door. Human mama finds you outside and thinks you’ve been running around all that time and finally come back. She’ll feel bad because she didn’t make sure you were with us. But she’ll be so happy to see you that it won’t last long.
Davy: That might work.
They cry at the door to be let out. The boy human lets them out. He doesn’t pay any attention to Caesar’s squirrel toy. The cats play for a few minutes. Then Caesar picks up his squirrel and runs to the door. He meows loudly. His human mama opens the door and looks down. She’s very upset.
Woman: Caesar! That’s a very bad kitty! You know you’re not allowed to kill.
She reaches down to take the squirrel and see if she can revive it. Caesar moves back and growls to protect his prize.
Woman: Caesar what is wrong with you? Let me have the squirrel.
Impressed by Caesar’s acting, the other two cats almost forget to run in opposite directions. All the woman notices is something furry running past her. Finally she reaches down to rescue the squirrel and discovers that it’s only Caesar’s new toy. She is irritated but relieved.
Woman: Caesar! Why did you scare me like that? Don’t do that!
Caesar walks slowly past her with his prize. She looks around the yard and doesn’t see any cats so she assumes they were what raced past her while she was preoccupied with Caesar. She closes the door and sits down to read, happy that the drama has ended.
Meanwhile, Davy is racing to Tori’s house.
Tori: Daddy! You made it! I can’t believe you got away.
Davy: Those Persians are pretty amazing.
Teresa walks up and sees Davy. She’s surprised he would actually show up. She tries to be civil for Tori’s sake.
Teresa: Davy! I didn’t believe you’d actually show up.
Davy: I needed the help of my fellow cats. But here I am. You look really good Teresa. I’ve missed you.
Teresa: Thank you. But you’re the one who ran off.
Davy explains what actually happened. Teresa looks skeptical but decides not to fight on Tori’s wedding day.
Teresa: Whatever. It’s almost time for the wedding. Find a seat.
That didn’t go as smoothly as he had hoped. But he didn’t blame Teresa. He had just disappeared. He understood that she would be hurt and angry. He heard music and quickly sat down.
The wedding was beautiful. Tori looked amazing and Robbie was a picture-perfect groom.The food was wonderful but before he knew it, it was time to to go. He was nervous on the way home. He stood at the door and cried. Before long, the female human opened the door.
Woman: Davy! Where have you been? I didn’t even know you were missing. I’m so glad to see you.
She picked Davy up and cuddled him. He was home.
