Bye! Bye! Bye!
A little girl says tearful goodbyes to her home full of pets as the family prepares to leave on summer holiday, pretending all along that it is the pets that are sad, not her. Kitten, mouse, frog, fish and duck all get a careful farewell, but actually, what harm is there, surely they can all fit! Shhh, the little girl ends up bringing them all!
