At an airport, a businessman notices a red cat anxiously waiting by a fence. The steward explains her story: she fell in love with a kitten raised by an eagle, who learned to fly and saved her from Hector the Bulldog. Every winter, he flies south, and she waits for his return each spring. As the story ends, the cat's boyfriend arrives with their litter of flying kittens, bringing joy to her waiting.
