Quote #4

"Oh, what will she do to us?
What will she say?
Oh, she will not like it
To find us this way! (230-33)

Aha! The source of the fish's fear is revealed. He knows that if Mother isn't satisfied with how things look when she gets back, he'll be in trouble. He is the babysitter, after all. Right?

Quote #5

Then our mother came in
And she said to us two,
"Did you have any fun?" (294-96)

What do you think? Is Mother is the kind of person who would understand the Cat and his crazy ways? Does she want the answer to be "yes" or "no"?
