But he started back to the corncob house to tell Mrs. Cat that he couldn't find her Snowball. And all the while he kept feeling more and more sad, until he was almost ready to cry.

And, would you believe me, right in the middle of one of the flowers something white moved and wiggled. Then it gave a little "Mew!" and then Uncle Wiggily cried: "Oh, Mrs. Cat, come here quickly! Here is Snowball! She was asleep inside of one of the water lilies!" And, surely enough, there was the little lost kittie, just awakening in one of the flowers, and she was exactly the color of it.
