"I Used To Have Cats," features only two actors, Sara Vitale and Natalie Neilson, who play sisters with contrasting life-styles and temperaments who live together.

Neilson grew up in San Francisco doing theater. She has starred as the leads in three Robert Fritz films. Neilson lives and works in New Hampshire.
