Sophie Fletcher is just an ordinary cat owner living in the suburbs, working a full time job as an accountant.
Except Sophie, owner of three cats, now also owns a greyhound.

The problems started three months after Sophie adopted Gene, a grey greyhound from Victoria.
"She gets into everything, every little nook and cranny, chewing up everything.
"I just want to get to a good night's sleep, but she gets me up at in the middle of the night, even when she doesn't need to wee!"
