One dark night a barrel containing a mysterious substance tumbles off a truck; suddenly a curious little cat is transformed into a lovely young woman with feline habits. Adopting the moniker Miss Minoes (and played in human form by the completely charming Carice van Houten), our heroine befriends Tibbe (Theo Maassen), a shy bumbling cub reporter for the local newspaper.
Still recognized as a cat by the neighborhood felines despite her new appearance, Miss Minoes organizes them into a rooftop newswire of pussycat gossip, and helps Tibbe become a star reporter. But danger lurks, as they discover that the popular chairman of the “Club For Friends of Animals” has nefarious plans. —Seattle International Film Festival
