The most important of all of the animals in Napoli (even he would say so) is Uno il Gatto, a smart and pretty clever cat. Because he is able to escape the house where he lives, Uno acts as a messenger between all of the cani randagi, or street dogs, in town. One day, however, Uno learns that a few of the dogs from the Barra district are missing and their cani friends that live there are very worried. Where are the cani randagi disappearing to? Which ones? How? And why? With the information that he learns on the streets, Uno il Gatto calls on all of his skills in order to help out his amici, the cani from Barra district. Is Uno really as brilliant as he thinks, or is he just another cute cat who thinks he’s ‘all that’?
