Three tales of terror linked by the observance of a mysterious cat. A man who wishes to give up smoking finds that the organisation he has approached will stop at nothing to see that he completes his treatment; a cuckolded mobster devises a deadly game for the former tennis star his wife has run off with, involving a circuit of the building on the outside ledge; and a young girl who longs to keep a stray cat as a pet is plagued by a gremlin that lives in her bedroom wall, and whose mischief is attributed to the cat, which is actually defending the girl from the gremlin.
