“But what if it’s not a cake?”

Three kittens, faced with a pink polka dotted present have different ideas of what might be in it. One’s pretty sure it’s a cake, but his two skittish friends aren’t so certain. What if it’s a big hungry crocodile waiting to eat them up? Or a cakeand a crocodile? Or a cake, a crocodile, a tiger AND a great white shark?
