Cat-22 is approaching a cat-headed Egyptian Sphinx, when a hieroglyphic cat suddenly recedes to reveal Agent Andrew offering the usual attaché-case. Gato Primo informs 22 that dogs have been sighted burying bones (it is unknown whose bones, but he fears the worst); though 22 flings away the brief-case at the beginning of Gato's countdown, he nonetheless slips on a roller-skate and lands on the case just as it self-destructs.
22 questions Guthrie as to why he is burying a bone; Guthrie tells him it is to prevent anyone else from eating it, but 22 points out that if it is buried, he himself can't eat it either. As he is, nevertheless, dutifully digging a hole, Percy begins munching on 22's bone; when 22 begins politely to ask for his bone back, Percy clouts him with it, knocking him down. Gato is shocked by the dogs' brutality, and Andrew arranges 22's rescue by means of a giant ball of yarn (which seems to do rather more damage than the oblivious Percy did).
22 is next seen in a hospital bed; Andrew appears to give him the "bad news" that he is being put on bed rest, watching TV and eating tuna-fish all day. 22 leans back in bed, and for once, the episode ends with him smiling.
- When Percy strikes 22 with the bone, Gato Primo comments, "Ay, those dogs are brutos!" Ay and brutos are Spanish words, indicating that Gato is a Spanish-speaker.
- This is the only episode that has a relatively happy ending, with 22 enjoying a bit of rest and relaxation.
