Tunney is Joe Cobb's pet cat. When they're moving in to the gang's town, Joe's father warns Joe not to let Tunney scratch him. Joe indicates this won't be a problem because he's put tiny boxing gloves on Tunney's paws. Tunney runs away from Joe, which leads him to the gang's clubhouse. Later, after Joe's unsuccessful initiation at the Manhattan Club, the gang ties a note to Tunney's tail to deliver for them.
