While the Cat's Away is a 1936 film starring Shemp Howard.


With their wives out of town, two husbands have been living it up too much. Their apartments are a mess, and the hangover never ends. A phone call from the ladies announcing an early return leaves Henry (Played by Shemp Howard) and Johnny (Played by Johnny Berkes) in a frantic rush to get the house cleaned up. Efforts are made much worse by a vacuum cleaner salesman whose trial model explodes, a loose parakeet, and a cat. The building super's wife comes to the rescue with her cleaner, but the boys to lose her dress in the vacuum. Henry and Johnny hide her in a trunk when their wives and her husband choose that moment to arrive at the house.
