The comfortable life of Pickles, a calico house cat, is turned upside down when humans succumb to the zombie apocalypse. She doesn't know where her "pet," the human child Connor, has gone, only that zombies are everywhere.

Determined to find Connor, Pickles sets off with her cat friends and a streetwise raccoon, exploring a world she has only seen through a window.
