This charmingly original Dutch family favorite is catnip for all friends of felines. Through a strange accident, a cat named Minoes is transformed into a young woman (Carice van Houten) and befriends Tibbe (Theo Maassen), a shy, bumbling cub reporter for the local newspaper. Still recognized as a cat by the neighborhood felines despite her new appearance, the intrepid Miss Minoes sets about organizing the kitties into a news-gathering service—in the process helping Tibbe to become a star reporter and exposing the duplicitous doings of a villainous factory owner.
