Time for a Bath

“Fabulous feline Fifi la Belle
had a finicky feeling all was not well.
The sneaking suspicion was more that a hunch
when, soon after supping on salmon for lunch,
Madame la Mousse sang out with a laugh,
‘Fifi, darling, time for your bath!’…”
Yes, Madame la Mousse has decreed it’s time for a bath. Fifi la Belle can’t stand being wet so she makes a quick escape. Unfortunately, it doesn’t go quite according to plan!
