A Toppling Hippo

          All of the kitties heads, tails and meee-ow let’s just say entire bodies turned towards the front where Daisy was standing looking not just twitchy but downright rattled.  “Whutz happened?”  asked the Mayor.

          “Da Creature did it again!”  yowled Daisy.  “He killded somebody again!”

          Silence.  Mee-ow believe it or not it was all-out silence.  We’re talking the type of silence that you could hear a pebble being kicked.  It was an incredible thing really, considering the hippo was still sitting in the middle of the road. 

          As a matter of fact, it didn’t even look like Hank was breathing.  His eyes weren’t saucers anymore they were spaceship size!  We’re meowing Millennium Falcon pals.  Smokey even had to meow out, “Hank!!  Hank what’s da matter wid you?”

          Hank was still staring but it didn’t look like he was breathing at all.  All of them were in a panic.  Casey wondered if Hank was actually going to topple over the hill and end up in the creek.  He could just imagine the SPLASH and all of the water going everywhere causing a massive flood.  He started to really believe it when Hank started swaying.  “Hank!!!”  yowled Casey.  “Watch yourself!”

          “We better holds him up!”  The Mayor meowed.

          “Are you kidding??”  Barney meowed.  “How are we gonna do dat?”
