Often they are not as sad as they appear to be. It was so this time. Nothing worse than a dreadful fright and a sore tail had hap- pened to little Nimbleheels. Blacky had pulled him out by that long, slender tail and because he didn't have a good hold of it he let go for just an instant to kill the little ifouse before taking him home.
