During the chaos of moving day, Slippers the cat is accidentally left behind. No matter how hard she tries, Slippers can’t catch the car as it drives away. So, Slippers decides to find a new owner to adopt. Though she meets many people on her search, there is something wrong with each one. Sometimes there is a scary animal like a dog or a horse that causes Slipper to move on from a potential new home. Sometimes it is a noisy truck or motorcycle that frightens Slippers away. Once, Slippers had to climb a tree to escape from a boy who yelled and jumped. As Slippers watches people walk by she sees someone who may be the person she is looking for and decides to follow. Not only does Slippers find a new family to adopt, she finds an old friend too.
