This warm story about a cat who goes looking for a fish and winds up with a lot more celebrates friendship and generosity.
Cat wants a fish. He ventures out in search of one and comes across a horn in the window of a music shop that he thinks his neighbor Elephant might like, so Cat buys it. Cat's search for a fish continues when he encounters a bookstore. Certainly bookworm Dog would enjoy a new book, so Cat buys him one. Cat's sweep of generosity continues as he buys presents for all his friends. In his surge of excitement to give everyone their new gifts, Cat almost forgets to get himself a fish! When Cat returns home and presents his friends with their new things they are all very happy, which for Cat, is the greatest happiness of all.
