Caramba est un chat comme les autres : il ronronne, il mange du poisson, il a le poil très doux... Mais pourtant, il est aussi bien différent des autres : il ne sait pas voler ! «Tous les chats du monde savent voler» dit-il tristement à sa copine Roselyne, un petit cochon rose. Il a beau essayer, rien n’y fait et il se retrouve toujours dans de drôles de situations.
