Three old ladies and their cat, Tabitha share an apartment. their landlady is always up to no good such as helping herself to things in their apartment - especially the whisky - when they are out. then she goes too far and poisons the cat. the three old ladies plan their revenge. they put some of the poison in the whisky bottle. But as they are going out they have a twinge of conscious and replace the whisky with an unadulterated one. When they come back they hear that the landlady is dead. they think that they must have got mixed up with the bottles. they write a confession and between them drink the bottle of whisky. Next day three rather hung over old ladies are found by the police sleeping it off. It turns out the landlady had been none too careful when she poisoned the cat and accidentally poisoned herself.
