A widower (Ontkean) and his teen daughter (Page) move into a house that was once owned by the friendly Mrs. Ashboro and her pet cat, Margaret. Strange things begin happening, and it soon becomes clear that the ghost of Mrs. Ashboro's cat Margaret, who died on the same day as its owner, is haunting the house. With Margaret's ghost, Natalie, Kurt and Brenda stop Boyd and Riker from stealing the money.
