Plot synopsis:
“The story revolves around a scrappy young dog who fights to save a town from becoming the litter box of a nefarious feline warlord.
In a land of cats, in a time long ago… The felines of Kakamucho are about to get their litter boxes shaken up when their new Samurai turns up and he’s not quite
what they expected — A DOG!
Hank, a scrappy, wide-eyed pooch on the run, scrambles ashore with dreams of becoming a Samurai like his kitty heroes. There’s just one problem: he doesn’t QUITE fit in. But he’s the perfect pawn for a scheming warlord named Ika Chu, who’s after Kakamucho’s land and needs the townscats out of his way. What better way to chase out a bunch of cats than a dog!
Hank rolls into Kakamucho large and in charge, but is quickly taken down a peg when confronted by a hornet’s nest of furious townscats – he’s no Samurai, he’s a dog! His only champion is Emiko, a young kitten with her own dreams of becoming a samurai. This is going to be a lot harder than Hank expected.
Luckily friends and training come in unlikely places. Hank finds the town outcast, a catnip-addled former swordsman named Yojimbo, who gives him a crash course, literally, in how to be a Samurai. With a little grit, determination, and his own canine style, Hank becomes a true Samurai and teaches his new compatriots a big lesson: It doesn’t matter where you came from, but who you are inside.
Cats and dogs living together. ”
