Phil, the cat, had an unbelievable journey, and it all began when he was adopted by a family of mice. He was put up for adoption, but no one wanted to bring him home.
When no one was looking, Phil jumped into a box and got lifted away by balloons. The box fell into a river, and he drifted downstream, where he was found by the mice.
He was raised as a mouse and lived in their tree house. One of his siblings was jealous of the love and attention Phil received from his adoptive parents.
The jealous sibling ruined Phil’s birthday party, and it caused Phil to run away from home. He ended up on a golf course and was adopted by the caretaker.
Phil grew up working on the course and had seemingly forgotten about his previous family. When there was a big tournament, Phil became in charge of keeping any mice off the premises.
Using his previous experience, Phil tracked down the mice’s hidden house. He found his old family and pictures of him hanging on the walls. With Phil’s help, the mice escaped on a box lifted by balloons.
The box was shot down by another cat, and Phil was fired from his job. He left for California because he thought his mice family didn’t survive. They were alive and hanging on the balloons.
