While browsing a glossy magazine, a fatigued feline spots the ideal relaxing vacation—a trip to Cat Lake City. Upon arriving, he finds the perfect spot by the lake to lay and enjoy the picturesque scenery. Things don’t quite as planned for the poor kitty though as protecting his beloved towel from the permanent residents of the lake proves to be much more stressful than he could ever have expected.
