Nurse Ariel Febreeze is blindsided when she discovers an affair between Nurse Mittens and her boyfriend of one month, Ty Bundles. Meanwhile, Nurse Kathy is battling a pill addiction and Dr. Royce Darlington is standing up for an abused patient.

That may sound like the plot of any standard soap opera, but half of those characters are actual cats.

Cat Hospital is a joint production of YouTuber Mark Douglas of Barely Productions and YouTube Space’s experimental Field Day initiative that helps creators push the boundaries with enhanced equipment and locations. How we lived in a world without a cat-themed soap opera set in a hospital run by cats and humans, we may never know.

Will Chase Buchanan III be caught for the murder of John Whiskerstein? You can’t tune in next week because this is a one-off video, but that’s exactly why fanfiction exists.
