Quote #4

"They are tame. Oh, so tame!
They have come here to play.
They will give you some fun
On this wet, wet, wet day." (188-91)

Uh oh. Does this mean the cat is a fibber? Or does he just have a different definition of tame? There's a reason the Things have to stay in box, after all.

Quote #5

"I always pick up all my playthings
And so…
I will show you another
Good trick that I know." (278-81)

"I always pick up all my playthings
And so…
I will show you another
Good trick that I know. (278-81)
