In Napoli, Italia... 

...on the streets, in the market, in the different districts and in many homes live lots of dogs and cats. Some are gray, some brown, and still some are white; each living in different regions of the old city, such as the market, and in the Ponticelli and Barra districts.. 

The most important of all of the animals in Napoli (even he would say so) is Uno il Gatto, a smart and pretty clever cat. Because he is able to escape the house where he lives, Uno acts as a messenger between all of the cani in the city. Though they are from different groups from different districts, these cani randagi, or street dogs, all rely on each other to stay safe. And, mostly, life is good for them.  

One day, however, Uno learns that a few of the dogs from the Barra district are missing and their cani friends that live there are very worried. Where are the cani randagi disappearing to? Which ones? How? And why? With the information that he learns on the streets, Uno il Gatto calls on all of his skills in order to help out his amici, the cani from Barra district. 

Is Uno really as brilliant as he thinks, or is he just another cute cat who thinks he’s ‘all that’?
