Augie reads a book that says fathers won't say they are sick or hurt to keep their children from worrying about them. Augie puts a blanket over a sleeping Doggie Daddy and Doggie Daddy thinks someone turned out the lights and runs into a bookcase and stubs his toe. Augie thinks he broke his leg and Doggie Daddy goes along with it to make his son happy.
Augie puts Doggie Daddy in a cast and starts serving him T-bone steaks. A cat comes along and steals the steak and Augie thinks that his Dad is really hungry and makes another one which the cat steals again. Doggie Daddy catches the cat in the act and the cat whacks him over the head with a steak. Doggie Daddy tries to tell Augie about the cat and Augie thinks that his Dad must have hit his head and puts a block of ice on his head.
The cat then starts to tickle Doggie Daddy's foot and Augie thinks that his Dad is getting hysterical. He goes in to check on him and to take the ice off and when his back is turned, the cat whacks him on the head with a stick. Augie thinks that his Dad struck him and goes to the front and calls for help.
The cat runs up dressed as a doctor and goes back to see Doggie Daddy. He tells Augie that he needs more steaks and Augie leaves to get some. The cat tells Doggie Daddy that he needs to operate and Augie shows up with the steaks and then leaves. The cat decides to eat first then operate. Doggie Daddy uses the rug the cat is standing on and drags him to him and then throw him out of the house. The cat ends up against a tree and Augie asks him if his Dad is o.k. and the cat says yes and runs away.
