In Sylvester's debut, a bird gets thrown out of his cage and tries to get Sylvester to eat him, but the slobbering cat finds something fishy about a bird who WANTS to get eaten. The plot of "Life with Feathers" got a similar treatment in "Cheese Chasers" (in which mice Hubie and Bertie OD on cheese and try to get Claude to eat them but he suspects that something is up). This one has a number of the familiar gags from Sylvester's outings with Tweety. An unfamiliar one is Sylvester's emaciation as he hears about different types of meals (it never gets explained how it is that he's starving even though he belongs to a family). In the end, it's a pretty fun cartoon.
