The cat didn't want to get off the mat. First, the bat, rat, and hat jumped on the cat, but he still didn't get up. Next, they hit him with a broom and he still didn't get up. Last, they screamed in the cat's ear and he finally got up. He ate the fish and went back to the mat. Truly, the cat loves his mat!

My favorite part is when they all fell on each other because the witch was coming and they were all scared. My favorite character was the rat because he was so cute. This story relates to my life because I have a messy house like the cat. The pictures help me understand the story.

I think others should read this book because the cat is fat and he is cute and funny.
