CLICK ON THE CAT.
The Cats decided there and then to find out what was wrong at Lillipilli’s house.
Cats are very good at finding things out.
Cats are very good at being quiet and they are very good at sneaking into places.
Cats are pretty fast, too, when they’re in the mood. They were in the mood to be fast on the 5th day of the Party because they did NOT want LilliPilli going back to sit on the floor without even her Fiddle.
They sent Blue Tail and Smoothie straight to the Faraway Tree Cottage to FIND THINGS OUT.
This is what they found out !
The Lady who lived in the Cottage had gone quite mad. She didn’t look mad when Lillipilli first went there to live – but now – she looked as crazy as Irene. Smoothie and Blue Tail watched her through the window and then hurried back to the Tower to talk it over with the other Cats.
Well ! We cannot let LilliPilli live with a woman as mad as that one ! No Way !
Lillipilli MUST have beautiful things all around her and only live with people who love her to pieces.
Lillipilli MUST be able to play her music whenever she wants and she needs a room where all her Musical Friends can come and sing and play with her.
Lillipilli simply must have her own furniture. Its just the right size for her.
The Cats talked on and on. They were getting ideas now and you all know what a Cat with an idea is like. The Cats decided that they needed to talk to Nana. None of them wanted to do that because they knew what Nana thought of Cats and they were just a little bit afraid. Making Lillipilli happy was more important than being afraid so the Cats went up to the top of the Tower to speak to Nana and her Friends. They were VERY careful not to rub against her legs. That would really have annoyed her.
As soon as Nana heard about the Mad Woman and Lilli Pilli, she knew just what to do.
Leave the Mad Woman where she is for now. said Nana. We, Witches, will look after her.
I shall call in the Sea Shellians and the Water Faeries and leave it up to them.
A MESSAGE FROM LILLI PILLI.
