Inspired by a true story, this is the fictional reimagining of
'Able Seacat' Simon's adventures and heroics in WWII's dangerous
seas. Simon is discovered in the Hong Kong docks in 1948 and
smuggled on board the H.M.S Amethyst by a British sailor who takes
pity on the malnourished kitten. The young cat quickly acclimates
to his new water-borne home, establishing himself as the chief
rat-catcher in residence while also winning the hearts of the
entire crew. Then the Amethyst is ordered to sail up the Yangtze to
take over the guarding of the British Embassy, and tragedy strikes
as the ship comes under fire from Communist guns. Many of the crew
are killed and Simon is among those who are seriously wounded.
Luckily, with the help of the ship's doctor, the brave cat makes a
full recovery and is soon spending time with the injured men in the
sick bay, purring and keeping their spirits up. News of Simon's
heroism spreads and he becomes famous world-wide - but it is still
a long journey back to England for both the crew and the plucky
little cat known as 'Able Seacat Simon'...
