Bob MacNally, Alfie and Annie Rose's neighbour, is very sad. His old cat Smokey has died and he misses him terribly. As it is nearly Mr MacNally's birthday, Alfie suggests throwing a surprise party to cheer him up. As well as a cake and lots of presents, there's an extra special surprise in store for Mr MacNally. And it's up to Alfie to look after it until the big day . . .
