In the Paris Zoo, Penelope Pussycat is starving and tries to beg the local zookeeper to give her some of the lions' food but he gently though firmly refuses. She then deliberately paints a white stripe on her back, disguising herself as a skunk, so as to be fed. The ploy works, but unfortunately for Penelope, she is discovered by Pepé, who immediately mistakes her for "le petite femme skunk" and pursues her affections.
Suddenly however, Pepé remembers his plan of a rendezvous. He sets up a makeshift house, serving Penelope champagne. She escapes Pepé, who of course pursues, believing her to be playing the "lovers' chase", to which he obliges. While looking for Penelope, he scares off a French poodle in the process. He later finds Penelope, who hits him with a mallet. He follows her into a tunnel of love. At the other side he is smooching and hugging a dumbfounded man, mistaking him for Penelope. Once Pepé realizes he got the wrong person, he angrily declares that the man shall hear from his second, to which the man replies by joining the French Foreign Legion before fainting. Penelope climbs a wall, running into Pepé once more, who sings "Babyface" in an attempt to woo her. He pursues her across Paris, dancing with her, but she bashes him over the head with a club. The zookeeper then finally catches Pepé, who regretfully waves goodbye to Penelope, and is soon put back in his cage.
