Logline: 
In a home full of fun and frolicking cats, the oldest feline must help his pals come to terms with the bittersweet cycle of life when one of the younger pets becomes seriously ill.
Synopsis/Details: 

Welcome to the world of Caesar, Gus and Julius - oh, and don't forget about their owner, Penny!

“It’s Great to have a Pet” delves into not only the depths of love we feel for the beasts who share our homes, but the devotion they give in return. And it's Cycle of Life stuff: How everything begins, flows, ends, repeats.

IGTHAP can certainly be enjoyed by the entire family; however, it's not a monumental pet adventure in which the animals have been personified.

That is, it’s more “Bambi” than “Puss in Boots”. While Puss was a wonderful and successful film, it was anthropomorphic in that one could substitute humans for the animal characters to achieve essentially the same story.

This one is an imagining that is 100 percent from the pets' p.o.v.

Incidentally, audiences might realize that the singular “pet” in the title actually refers to the cats' human owner: "She" is "their" pet!

The Writer: Steve Garry

I wrote my first screenplay in 2008, at the age of 52. It was a surprise, yet predicable too, for composition was my favorite subject in my earliest years of elementary school. But somewhere between the ages of 10 and 52, I must have felt that writing wasn't a serious or possibly an attainable career. My writing methodology is unique because I use many of the same skills I used for decades as a software programmer. The stories must be both "logical" and "bug free". Oh, and hopefully, thought-provoking, entertaining, suspenseful, or humorous, often in the same script, with captivating characters and story lines, especially given the complex themes I often take on in my work.
