Won Ton is a house cat who loves living the typical cat life and spending time with his master “Boy.” But one day everything changes when Boy brings home an unexpected and unpleasant surprise—a puppy named Chopstick! This adorable pup seems to steal everything that Won Ton loves: attention, food, and space. After several little cat-dog skirmishes, Won Ton and Chopstick get put together, and Won Ton comes to realize that his canine companion isn’t so detestable after all. In fact, they actually have some things in common! The story resolves to find Boy, Won Ton, and Chopstick finally together and in harmony.
