Mischief with Marmelade and Tigger

Louisa is a gardener. She spends her days with plants. When she comes home from work, dirty and tired, all she wants is a nice relaxing bath. She rarely has a shower. Instead, she turns on the tap and lets the warm water flow into the bathtub, then she gets in. She listens to music and forgets about everything around her.

Marmelade and Tigger, her two cats, creep quietly into the bathroom. This is their favourite time of day. Marmelade loves looking at himself in the mirror, and he combs his whiskers with Louisa’s toothbrush –  he’s a very good-looking cat! He really loves jumping on the toothpaste and smearing it all over the basin. Tigger, on the other hand, just can’t wait to play with a role of toilet paper.

Louisa can’t believe her eyes when she opens them to reach for a towel, what a mess! The cats had run out of the bathroom fast as lighting. The only clue they leave behind is the little rubber ducky in toilet. Lucky, Louisa thinks to herself as she takes in the scene. The rubber ducky has made a mess but imagine how it would look if the cats had come in here too!
