Your cat is useless.
OK, so what can it do — catch some mice?
Well Joe’s cat, Earthling J.J. Catingsworth The Third, can be a key copier, screwdriver, periscope, shotgun, hover board and a weapon of minor destruction.
That is, with a shot of cat juice.
Welcome to King City, one of the oddest places you’ll ever visit, where Joe and his cat are trying to make a living and to steer clear of both trouble and Joe’s ex girlfriend.
Unfortunately, this peculiar duo isn’t having much luck on either front — but then it wouldn’t be much of a story if they did.
Brandon Graham’s sci-fi comedy is distinctive in its oddness — and that’s not a bad thing.
