Sadie the skunk thinks she is a cat until a sibling kitten points out Sadie's differences from the rest of the family. When Sadie asks her parents about it, they answer all her questions, telling her they found her as a baby alone in the forest and brought her home. However, they can't answer Sadie's most important question - what kind of an animal is she? To find this out, they take her to wise old Mr. Groundhog whose answer sends her on a series of misadventures. In the end, it is Sadie's most unique characteristic that helps her find her true home.
