Tumford is a messy cat, but that’s not his main problem. He refuses to say he’s sorry and hides after every mishap. His elderly parents love him unconditionally anyway, but make him promise to apologize for any future messes if they take him to the fair. Tumford makes a terrible mess dumping kippers on the Fair Queen. He honors his promise and finds out apologizing isn’t so scary after all.
