Two servants of an elderly, wealthy woman discover they are due to inherent the late woman's money, on the condition that they care for her rambunctious pet cat. The old woman had long thought the cat was a reincarnation of her late husband and so made caring for the cat a stipulation for anyone inheriting her estate. Unfortunately, before they were aware of this condition, the servants had thrown the cat out of the house, and now they must track it down and bring it back home before misfortune befalls the animal.
