Two elderly ladies, one of which is Granny, the owners of Sylvester and Tweety, sneak their pets into the Spinsters Arms hotel where no pets are allowed. Sylvester, hearing Tweety's singing in the room next to his, writes a letter to the canary from his "Ardent Admirer". Tweety soon discovers who his "admirer" is, and a chase ensues, which is cut short by the security guard forcing Sylvester to disguise himself as a lady in bed screaming for help from the policemen, causing the security guard to flee. "I, uh, I'm sorry, ma'am. I beg your pardon."
Sylvester then sneaks into Tweety's room and tries to get him in his cage; this backfires and he is knocked out by the spring-loaded cage. Sylvester then phones Tweety that his owner has a surprise for him; Tweety goes downstairs to receive it, but instead goes down Sylvester's throat, returning with a mouse from the time of Thomas Jefferson, explaining he is dead. The chase then goes outside, and into the room of Hector. Sylvester doesn't realize until after he's captured Tweety again that the dog is there. Another chase ensues, involving dog, cat and bird, which is also cut short by the security guard, forcing the three to form a truce long enough to disguise themselves as an angry old lady with Tweety's head. "Sorry, ma'am, there's been a mistake." The chase resumes again, prompting the frustrated security guards to finally make an announcement evicting all pets. "Attention, everyone! Someone has pets in this house and I want them out of here immediately!" Unfortunately for him, to his horror a veritable zoo calls the hotel home, and comes stampeding over him.
Getting up, the security guard dizzily says Tweety's catch phrase, "I tawt I taw a putty tat!" Tweety, popping out of hiding, replies "You did! You did! You taw a putty tat, a moo-moo cow, a big gorilla, a giddy-up horsey, and a wittle monkey!"
