What Is Hallmark’s The Nine Kittens Of Christmas About?
According to the Hallmark synopsis, single and now a firehouse Captain, Zachary (Routh) is planning his usual Christmas ski trip away. However, when Chief Sam (Harrison) and his daughter, Gabi (Dunsmore) convince him to stay, he ends up running into Marilee (Sustad).
Now a successful veterinarian and co-owner of a busy clinic in Miami, Dr. Marilee White has returned home to Oregon for the first time in five years. She is there to spend the holidays with her sister Jaclyn (Bennett) and her family.
Zachary discovers a box with nine adorable kittens left at the fire station. Moreover, Mariliee steps up to help, and soon the pair team up to host a series of adopt-a-thons at the town’s Christmas events.
As the two reminisce while getting into the holiday spirit, they find that their connection is undeniably still there. With career opportunities once again pulling them in different directions, will they embrace this second chance at love before the last kitten is adopted?
