Seven Seas Entertainment describethe storyline as:
When Saku took in a stray black cat, she never expected that he would become the equivalent of a housekeeping life partner.
But Yukichi, a giant cat who towers over Saku, is not your ordinary feline.
He takes great pride in his culinary skills, and a good sale at the supermarket always gets his whiskers twitching.
Saku may not have her act together yet, but at least she has Yukichi!
