The mouse instructed Elise to wait till nightfall for his return. She did as the mouse bid and when nightfall came, the mouse returned. "Kind maid, your beloved has been put under a terrible spell and is set to marry the king’s daughter." The king was holding a ball for the next 3 nights and the mouse told her of his plan for her to attend the ball to win back her beloved prince.
The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down.
