Quincy, the chubby kitty who lives with Chase, loves sweet treats and will go to any length to get them. Anna, Chase’s dessert shop partner, thinks Quincy would like to learn to walk on a leash. It would get him outside and burning calories. Chase is not so sure. She’s got other things to think about though, like the high school reunion that looks more like a political rally. Richard “Dickie” Byrd has arranged a fourteen-year reunion—who does a fourteen? Everybody is sure it’s a ploy to get votes for his mayoral run.

Quincy is an escape artist. Give him a door that isn’t quite latched and he’s outta there, always in search of the next fine dining experience. Dr. Ramos, who is a pretty nice guy otherwise, says Quincy is overweight, like fifteen pounds is too much for a cat! The outrage! Since his person, Chase, refuses to give him a decent meal and monitors the treats he gets while working in the office of the Bar None (bar cookies), he has to take nutrition into his own paws.
