When the spirit of Christmas arrives in Deadwood, South Dakota, it has a decidedly feline flavor. The town’s only undertaker, Cody Gunner, finds himself playing host to a mischievous cat named Catawampus who opens up a whole new world of holiday cheer – and mayhem. As Cody deals with pesky mice in his mortuary, solicitous Santa Clauses at the hardware store, and amorous elves at the bakery, he also has to contend for first place in the annual light parade against perennial rival Maude Sadler. It’s going to take more than Christmas magic to thwart her this year . . . but luckily Catawampus is on hand to lend a paw!
