When Starfire only expresses her intense and close affection to a cat, Robin realizes that the only way Starfire will ever notice him is if he turns into a cat. Unfortunately, his plan for love and affection didn't work out as he'd planned.
The Titans try to stop a bomb from Dr. Light and end up making a horrible argument. Starfire carried the bomb up into space and didn't make out in time. She fell and hit into the ground, knocking her into a coma, and Robin tries to get her to wake up and he starts to cry. After finding out that she was okay and he tries to tell her about how much he loved her. While professing his love for her, Starfire asks if he saw the kitten behind him and she pick it up. Back at the tower, Starfire was playing with the kitty and calling him Nibbles, Robin concludes that the only way Starfire will love him is if he is a cat, while Beast Boy says a dog would be better. Cyborg tries to tell Robin that how he can become a cat is by wishing a shooting star. Taking Cyborg's advice he sees the star and makes a wish.
The next morning, Robin thought he had become a cat but Raven, Beast Boy and Cyborg started to laugh revealing that it was just a prank and he was wearing cat gloves. Robin said the star didn't work, but Cyborg said that a shooting star doesn't turn people into cats but Robin told them that their joke was not going to stop him and he kicked them out of his room, Beast Boy said that he's not going to win Star over by using whiskers or becoming a cat. The next day, Robin dresses as cat using a costume. Starfire saw Robin dressed as a cat and she tosses the kitten she had and named him "Sassypants" and had "Kitty Fun Times" with him which he thoroughly enjoyed.
In a comic, Raven said that Sassypants does nothing but sleep and eat. Cyborg makes lasagna and Sassypants kicks Beast Boy as a dog, and ate a whole lasagna and tells him he hates Monday.
Meanwhile, Raven, Beast Boy and Cyborg tell Starfire that they had to get rid of Sassypants and Starfire says that she going to move into a apartment. Several months later, Starfire brought more kittens into her apartment. Another several more months later, Raven, Beast Boy and Cyborg told Starfire that she had to come back and Raven told Sassypants to come over. Sassypants doesn't listen until Cyborg told Sassypants to come over by using a yarn ball. Beast Boy told that Starfire became a "Cat Lady" because of him. Raven say that he's hopeless and they leave. Sassypants goes into the window and realizes that becoming a cat made Starfire love him in the wrong way and tries to get rid of the cats. Robin dressed up as a puppy and gets rid of the kittens. Starfire comes back with her kitty's food and then she gets hit by a can. Starfire slowly reads the can reading they have ran away. She cries for her kittens and Robin (dressed as a puppy) barks. She sees the new puppy and she is turned back to normal for example she loses her sweater and changes back her normal clothing.
Outside in the fields, Starfire and Puppy (aka Robin) are playing fetch the ball and Raven said that living with pets can be a long dawn. While Raven says this the audience can hear a car screeching and a dog barking, implying the puppy (a.k.a Robin) got ran over.
