It’s Like This, Cat is the story of a young man, Dave Mitchell, and how he grew to maturity, helped along indirectly by a stray cat that he brought home from Crazy Kate, the neighborhood Cat Lady. Dave lives in New York City with his lawyer father and his mother, who has bouts of asthma brought on by family strife. The cat, named “Cat” lives a wild life that brings Dave in contact with a future friend and girl friend.

With Dave’s new cat-related experiences comes an increased appreciation for his parents and deepening care for his new friends.
