Kyoto, Japan. It’s a fresh morning in a Zen monastery.

An old monk and Tora Chan, a tabby cat, quarrel for the sand expanse in the garden:

The first to make a Zen drawing out of it, the second because she mistook it for a giant litter.

The blunt cat neutralizes every attempt of the monk to send her away from his work; the fight becomes an unavoidable consequence, and in a sequence of gags the two devastate the drawing on the sand so meticulously tended by the monk.
