Milo and Otis are furry young friends who stray from the farm on which they are born and embark upon a lengthy journey that is fraught with perils. One is a puppy and one is a kitten, but they don't care about the difference in their species, nor do they seem to be afflicted by the typical rivalry so common to cats and dogs. Still, they do quarrel sometimes, which makes it necessary for them to undergo parts of their journeys alone. There's a melancholy tone to the tale as the friends so quickly progress from early childhood to adulthood, with everything coming full circle at the end of the film. Still, their friendship is solid, and they demonstrate how friendship can survive despite differences.
