Cattification: Journey of Crinkling
After her grandkitty's death, Sara inherits an ancient cat toy and a near-impossible quest—refresh the mysterious crinkle mouse's source of crinkling. Driven to do so, she must find the other two cat toys of feline power, long considered lost under the fridge or stove or maybe down the vent, while preventing an unknown but probably drooly and stupid dog from finding her first.
Unprepared and alone, she travels to where the keepers of the cat toys, the Siamesi, were last spotted. Get it? Because some cats are spotted? Except not the Siamesi. They were colorpoints. Anyway, along the way she meets Toby Three Claw, leader of the nomadic and super furry Himalayan cat pride. As Sara wrestles with the urge to constantly pet and serve tuna to this intriguing tomcat, she is also invigorated by her grandkitty's passion to find the ancient Siamesi race.
After a rival pride kidnaps Toby's kitten and heir, Sara must harness the cat toy’s magical crinkle appeal to unite the feral cat colonies and save the kitten. But as the dark canine power snuffling after her gains ground, will she continue her quest to reach the Siamesi or risk everything to save the warring prides from going to the dogs?
