Blanche and Rose are two young cats who share their home with Grandma Dorothy and the feisty, opinionated tabby Sophia.
Sophia is the grande dame of the household and rules it with an iron paw, perched on her throne atop the pile of freshly pressed laundry. Sophia is also ill and requires a special diet and daily visits to the vet for her injections. She makes the trip each day in her favourite basket wrapped in her warm and familiar blanket.
One day, they bump into millennial Kardashian Tan, who tells Grandma Dorothy to dump the old cat and get a younger one.
What would Grandma Dorothy do? Is a pet for life? Or can they be replaced when they get old?
This is the heartwarming story of the bond between an old lady and her three fur babies.
