"When Fish Fly" is a short story of a cat boy in a cat world who has the responsibility of upkeeping his late parents' fish shop. Although he values this tradition, it also bears a lot of weight on his shoulders because, ironically, he hates working at the fish shop. Ever since his parents were gone, the fish shop hasn't been doing very well. He feels like an outsider, being the only fish shop within a community of rich fancy cat themed stores. Instead, he dreams of soaring the skies as a cat pilot in a cat plane.
So, when one day everything becomes overwhelming, he decides to take a chance on his dream, and eventually discovers these sparkling flying fish. That's when he decides to use this opportunity to merge tradition and his dream together by selling flying fish!
