Beanie, a ginger haired young girl, loves that her cat, Stretchy McHandsome, is ginger like her and that he also has one blue eye and one green one! They love being ferocious, stretching, scratching, and curling up together. But then Beanie decides to make Stretchy the perfect pet. But Stretchy has no interest in learning math, dancing, or riding in a stroller. And he certainly doesn't want to wear a harness! When Stretchy acts out to make clear how unhappy he is, Beanie must decide if letting Stretchy be Stretchy is good enough.
