Premise

The dogs retrieved the Constitution from its perch and chewed it up like a rubber chipmunk. Forcing the lawyers to turn catty as they attempt to save the feline only pet store/mecca of CatSmartCo before it is infiltrated by canines under the banner of affirmative action. But the NÜTER-ing (No Undermining of True Equal Rights) Movement may get snipped before it has begun. (80 minutes)

This queer musical is a low tech farce with flinging toy cats, spears made from broomsticks, helmets with ears on top, and lots of cat paraphernalia. If somebody finds enlightenment or experiences growth from viewing Catladies, the writer will salute him or her for finding more depth than intended. This musical contains offensive language and sexual innuendo. It requires a willingness to embrace the absurd and should not be seen or heard by virgin eyes or ears.
