The story is about a mother cat named Duchess and her three kittens, Marie, Berlioz, and Toulouse, live in a mansion in Paris in 1910.  The landlady was a retired opera singer Madame Adelaide Bonfamille, along with her English butler Edgar. She early on settles her will with her lawyer Georges Hautecourt, an aged, eccentric old friend of hers, stating that she wishes for her fortune to be left to her cats, who will retain it until their deaths, upon which her fortune will revert to Edgar. Edgar hears this and is unwilling to wait for the cats to die naturally before he inherits Madame Adelaide’s fortune, and plots to remove the cats from a position of inheritance. An alley cat acquaintance helps the kidnapped kittens from the butler.

You can hear the voices of Eva Gabor, Phil Harris, and Roddy Maude-Roxby as Edgar the butler, the anti-hero of the story.

Another wonderful animated movie from the master of the art.
