Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Tom has bound Jerry to a long string, and is forcing the mouse to wait on him hand and foot. That's the condition that prevails until the arrival of the mailman, who delivers a cute little kitten to Tom's mistress. Sensing that the purring, wide-eyed newcomer poses a threat to his position in the household, Tom does his best (or worst) to get rid of the kitten. But the little furball has a strong ally in Jerry, who appoints himself the kitten's guardian and protector. The cartoon's highlight is Tom's eloquently savage pantomime as he threatens Jerry with the direst of consequences.
