Storyline

A kitten is adopted by a maternal eagle, who teaches the young cat to fly- by using his tail as a spinning propeller. Upon reaching the age to venture into the world on his own, the flying cat uses his extraordinary ability to save an attractive girl cat from a bulldog. These two cats mate and beget a family of flying felines, all of whom fly south with their father each winter and return north in the spring to rejoin their mother.

Where do you get these ideas

Odd little cartoon, even for Chuck Jones, about a cat, raised by eagles, who flies by whirling his tail around. Sort of like a reversed Pepe Le Pew, full of cute little bits and a large bulldog to torment. A treat for cat lovers.
