Greengrass is walking his dog Alfred when Raymond Walker takes a shot at him for trespassing. And Greengrass is not the only one having trouble with Walker. He has offered Jane Thompson to buy her cottage after her husband's death, but the old lady has been the victim of harassment since she turned down his offer. She does not want to sell even though she can live with her daughter Jennifer and her husband. Alf Ventress saves a cute, little kitten from drowning and keeps it at the police station to the great displeasure of sergeant Blaketon.

A landowner, a Mr Walker is keen to get his hands on the her cottage. Nick at first suspects Walker of being behind the threatening behaviour, but Blaketon warns him off. The ladies son-in-law sells the cottage and she eventually is forced to move into a home, but she's not happy and goes back to her cottage. She then refuses to vacate it.
