In each episode, people emailed Dr. Warren videos about the problems they had with their cats. Dr. Warren then (in seasons 1 and 2) consulted her colleagues and devised a plan of action. She then visited the people with cat problems at their homes, met their cats, discussed the problems, and offered solutions. She came back a few days later and checked to see if her suggestions worked. Usually they did, and the problems were solved. The show also contained a segment called "Dr. Kat's Corner" in which she gave general cat care advice.
