It's Only Ink!
Rip Squeak and His Friends

After the humans left the little cottage in the woods, Rip sat at his desk and daydreamed about a new adventure. Feeling a little hungry, he and his little sister Jesse and her doll, Bunny, head to the kitchen. Just turning the corner, they heard a loud meow. Nervous they approached a sad looking kitten named Abbey. Rip introduced himself. The kitten told them that she felt sad because her family left without her and she was now all alone. "You're not alone," Rip said. And this began a wonderful new friendship. The three quickly became close friends, playing games, reading stories, acting out scenes, eating popcorn, and singing with Euripides the frog.
