    • Synopsis
    • A cat flies out a Manhattan window during a domestic dispute and hits a Palestinian woman on the head; what happens next? She was receiving a medal of valor for heroism during nine eleven, it's captured live on television and America goes crazy. This wasn't a simple accident; it was a vile piece of animal cruelty, an outrageous act of terrorism…
      The male in the domestic is arrested; he is Henry Putz, a Jewish Pet taxidermist. Palestinians, animal rights activists, and his estranged wife conspire and make his life hell. In a ridiculous media driven trial Henry's personal life is torn to shreds and only one thing can save him, he's got to find that cat...
      In a grand finale that includes the nastiest cat hostage scene of all time, Henry defeats America and saves his marriage. You see America wanted more than the truth, they wanted to be moved and even a taxidermist/terrorist can be redeemed.
      But with this Pet Taxidermist… everything is not as it seems.
