She then sent the kittens outside,
saying, "Keep your clothes clean!" But
Mittens and Moppet got their pinafores
dirty and Tom lost his buttons. When
they climbed the garden wall, their
clothes fell off completely!
Just then three Puddle-Ducks
marched by. They picked up
the kittens' clothes and put
them on. How the kittens
laughed to see the ducks
dressed in their clothes!

But when Mrs. Twitchit found her
kittens without their clothes, she
was very angry. She sent them
upstairs and told her guests that the
kittens were sick.
In their room, Mittens, Tom Kitten, and
Moppet played and chased each other,
The guests downstairs wondered how
sick kittens could make so much noise ~
As for the Puddle-Ducks - they
went swimming in a pond. But
their new clothes came off, because
there were no buttons. And the
Puddle-Ducks have been looking for
them ever since.
