Doing What Comes Naturally

Starring: Top Cat
Guest starring: Officer Dibble and The Gang
Summary: Dibble orders the cats to find jobs. They have no luck selling catnip-flavored lemonade or shining shoes with their tails, so T.C. suggests they work as mousers. A lady hires them to shoo mice from the famous painter's castle she bought. They do so easily, but are later scared by a ghost. They find a mouse cage in the bushes, and realistic murals on the walls that have been painted over. T.C. suspects someone brought the mice to the castle and released them, and posed as the ghost, to scare off the lady and get the valuable paintings for himself. They trick him into running right into a realistic mural and knocking himself out. The lady turns the castle into a museum, and to keep guests from bumping into the murals, she hires the gang to lean on the walls all day.
