Granny's friend brings her bird with her to leave at Granny's house while she is out of town. Granny tells Precious to watch the bird while she takes her friend down to the train station.
Precious falls asleep after they leave and a cat sneaks in. The cat tries several time to get the bird and Precious usually stumbles in just at the right time to stop the cat until the cat slams the basement door on Precious and he falls down the stairs and the cat locks the door.
the cat thinks that now he has an easy meal until he reaches in to get the bird and the bird uses Karate on the cat and slams the cat into the wall. Granny comes home at this point and the cat runs out and Precious gets out of the basement and chases after it. Granny thinks that Precious kept the cat away and the bird knows better.
