“Dance?” he asked, confused. “I can do that!” Casey then preceded to wiggle his tail and shake out his legs. The next thing you know he fell on his face. Joey, who had been watching this, started laughing/purring and the next thing you know he fell over Casey and both of them were passed out!
Toni couldn’t believe it!! What in the meow was she supposed to do? The entire island seemed to be paired up. As a meow of fact, Mayor Tony was even holding tails with Daisy. Daisy? Daisy was even paired with somebody?
Meee-ow, what was she supposed to do?
That’s when that big, booming voice shouted out, “Whassuh matter, little kitty?”
Toni turned around to face Hank! Hank!? Wait a meow-minute- where in the meow had he been? Meee-ow there was no time for this. “I need a partner for the dance contest!” Toni announced.
What would a hippo know about dancing? However, Hank, as you know was no ordinary hippo. When Toni meowed out the word ‘dance’ his face lit up. “I love to dance!” he exclaimed.
Now, I know what you humans are thinking. How can a hippo dance? Well, I have no idea. If I did, I’d submit a video but right now, we’ll have to take Hank’s word for it.
“Let’s go sign up!” Toni exclaimed. “We have to hurry bepaws it might be too late!”
It turns out that registering was no problem but meee-ow did the 2 get the looks. There were 50 other couples and Toni and Hank were the only mixed couple. They would be the last two on and meeee-ow everyone on Fish Island couldn’t wait to see what they were going to do!
“What do you think we should do?” Toni asked. She was feeling really nervous. Why in the meow did they have to be last? There would be way to much thinking going on.
Hank seemed very smug. “Don’t you worry about it,” he said. “I’ve been in a lot of contests and we’ll win for sure.”
A hippo and a fat kitty in a dance contest…
Now how weird was this really going to get?
