While browsing through a magazine, Heathcliff dreams of what it would be like to be a rich Beverly Hills cat. He soon finds out, slipping off into dreamland.

Heathcliff awakens to find he's safe in the Nutmeg household, which beats Beverly Hills any day. / Mungo's giant creation of a metal moving cat is ridiculed by the gang.
