Premise

When ten-year old Coop Burtonburger’s spoiled little sister Millie brings home a mysterious stray cat, his idyllic life is turned upside down. Coop soon discovers Kat is more than just a scrawny, purple, hairless pet; he is also a super-smart, conniving mastermind of evil with a fanatical hate for Coop himself. Kat instantly declares war on Coop--to the death; the two fight constantly as Coop tries to stop the evil Kat and tell the world about his possible plans, only to find Kat evilly destroying the evidence and even more evilly putting the blame on him (Coop) every time.

European broadcasting

Marc Buhaj, the Senior Vice President of Jetix Europe, said of the program: "We are excited to be part of the Kid Vs. Kat adventure with the Studio B team. The series has those quality cartoon elements found in the classics - great music and score, neat characters and crisp slapstick timing. Our main duo of Coop and Kat are set to establish one of the great ongoing cartoon rivalries. One unlucky kid with one freaky, ferocious feline creates absolute mayhem that Jetix kids across Europe will love. I have a feeling that Coop is the one who is going to need a full nine lives just to survive!"[8]
