The Cat in the Hat


by Dr. Seuss

The Cat in the Hat Lines 131-142 Summary

A Better Idea

  • Not so fast. The Cat recovers from his tumble and reminds the fish who's really running the show
  • See, he actually doesn't want to leave. This is a pretty nice place, after all.
  • He tells the fish: "I will NOT go away./ I do NOT wish to go!" (135-136)
  • Well then.
  • What he does wish to do is show everybody another game—whether they like it or not. 
  • Bring it on, Cat. Shmoop is so ready.
