One day, Mr. and Mrs. Button visit animal shelters to pick out a pet—unfortunately, they visit different shelters. Mr. Button brings home a friendly-looking dog, while Mrs. Button brings home a smart-looking cat. Since they live in a rather small house, Dog and Cat must share a room.
Dog and Cat do NOT get along. They are TOTAL opposites. Dog is sloppy while Cat is a neat freak. Dog likes to keep in constant touch with all his friends and Cat likes to play games all night long. And then, there was the litter box issue, which started a battle of epic proportions—each trying to get the upper hand over the other—that resulted in separation and time out for both, which did give them time to think about how much each missed the other one. Upon release from their confinement, Dog and Cat find themselves united in trying to deal with the new TERRIFYING creature Mr. and Mrs. Button brought home.
