Yoshi’s a witty and wise black cat who won’t step a paw outside of his house but who can process the information that Gatsby brings him into solutions for even the trickiest mysteries. From shutting down dogfighting operations to stopping attempted peticide, these guys handle it all and do it with humor and style. If you’re a housepet and you have a problem, call the Petectives!
