Grissom, Brown and Willows investigate the death of an old woman who lived in a house full of cats. She had been dead for several days and was evidently stabbed. Two children living across the street say they saw the old woman's argue with her next door neighbor. A wall safe in her bedroom was also broken into. Stokes and Sidle meanwhile investigate when a car is blown up and the owner has no idea why anyone would try to kill her. The evidence, including fingerprints on a piece of the pipe bomb, all points to the woman's husband who works in the family demolition business. Written by

Grissom comments that since cats were domesticated "only" 4000 years ago, they still retain many wild instincts. This line appears to be a misreading on the writers part. At the time the episode aired, the oldest known evidence of domestic cats were Egyptian paintings from around 4000 BC, thus meaning that there had been domestic cats for at least 6000 years (New archaeologic evidence published after the episode aired revealed that there were domestic cats in Cyprus and the Levant before that date, possibly going back as far as 9500 years ago).
