A TV movie made for the Showtime Cable Network, Whiskers is the story of a reclusive boy named Jed Martin (Michael Caloz). His parents (Steve Adams & Laurel Paetz) are concerned that he spends too much time with his cat, Whiskers, as opposed to making human friends. Fearing that his parents plan to get rid of Whiskers, Jed asks for help from the Egyptian cat goddess Bastet who grants his wish . . . by turning Whiskers into a human being (Brent Carver).
