Dixie Hemingway, no relation to you-know-who, accepts a job taking care of celebrity linebacker Cupcake Trillin’s cats while he’s away. What seems like a simple cat-sitting job turns scary when Dixie finds a high-profile fashion model in Cupcake’s house. The woman refuses to leave and she also claims to be Cupcake’s wife. Only problem? Dixie has met Cupcake’s wife—and she’s not this woman. Before long Dixie is spun into the world of counterfeit high fashion…and a whole lot of cat fur. When a valuable list of fake-merchandise sellers goes missing, the criminals go after Dixie. Just when she thought she could have her (cup)cake and eat it too, Dixie finds herself with her tail between her legs. Can she claw her way out of this one?
