Issue two picks up after Captain Ginger has taken back his command, and leads his people to safety. Seen as a hero in many eyes, Captain Ginger faces a new different problem with the feral cats slowly overtaking the ship. These cats are more like modern household variety. They are small, curious and can hide almost anywhere. And what some unfortunate cat owners know, any large group of cats will create some disasters. These unevolved cats are messing with the ship’s support system and interfering with the Captain’s work. Sergeant Mittens has fallen from the Captain’s graces and is forced to clean up a nightmare of kitty litter boxes. Mittens performs the difficult task without question, understanding the punishment for all that he has done. But his own troubles worst at every moment, leaving to messier cleanups that would make every pet owner angry. It seems like even if cats have evolved to space travel, cat hygiene and bathroom etiquette won’t ever change.
Cat fans rejoice, this series emphasizes all the cute attics your household pet would display. However, if you ever wonder what would happen if they were left unchecked, now you know they could bring down a starship with some bad behaviors.
