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.
