"The chimney wants sweeping—Oh, dear me, Cousin Ribby—now
Moppet and Mittens are gone!"
"They have both got out of the cupboard!"

rummaged in cupboards. They even fetched a candle, and looked
inside a clothes chest in one of the attics. They could not find
anything, but once they heard a door bang and somebody scuttered
downstairs.
