Mewsette, a little country cat on a French farm, decides to abandon her peasant life and go to Paris. She is followed by her devoted admirer, Jaune-Tom, and his kitten companion, Robespierre. Upon arriving in Paris, Mewsette falls into the hands of the evil Meowrice who takes her to a salon run by the plump and jaded Madame Rubens-Chatte. Unaware that Meowrice is planning to groom her for marriage to a rich cat in Pittsburgh, Mewsette willingly takes beauty courses. When Jaune-Tom and Robespierre arrive in the city, Meowrice gets them drunk and has them shanghaied aboard a ship headed for Alaska. Once there, they accidentally discover gold and return to Paris laden with wealth. Mewsette, meanwhile, has learned of Meowrice's plans and tries unsuccessfully to escape. She is placed in a basket labeled for Pittsburgh, but Jaune-Tom and Robespierre come to the rescue. After disposing of the culprit, Jaune-Tom rides away with his beloved Mewsette.
