A little girl is quite disappointed when she receives Dudley dog for her birthday. All she wants is a CAT. Dudley escapes out the window shortly after she blows out the candles. The dog escapes death time after time and hears from all of the townspeople, “Do you think you have nine lives like a cat?” I assume most children will feel confused in the end. You’re left wondering if the dog turns into a cat or is eaten by a tiger. Strange!
