The cat Olive rescues from a flood has a secret: he's not really a cat but an alien who crashed to Earth. The cat, whom Olive names Leonard, was prepared to visit the planet as a human - but something went wrong. Now Leonard may never know what it's like to go bowling or host a dinner party. While Olive worries about whether she will have to move after her mom gets back from vacation, Leonard tries to figure out how to get from South Carolina to Yellowstone National Park because if he's not there at the end of the month, he'll miss his ride home. But as Olive teaches Leonard about the world of humans, he starts to realize how much he cares about this particular one.
