On board the Polish destroyer ORP Piorun the ship's pet cats Żaba (Frog) and Tygrys (Tiger) are being encouraged to make friends with a stowaway which must have escaped from an oiler. The Poles make a great fuss of their pets for they hold it as an ill omen if cats voluntarily leave the ship before she sails.
