Kitty Cameo: At the beginning of the film Ernie is out with his little sister and a mule. They realize they are hungry and wonder what to do about food.  Ernie spots a cat nearby which starts to drink from a saucer of milk outside a home.

Unfortunately before Ernie can get to the milk, Buster the dog chases the cat away and then calls his puppies, who make short work of the milk and leave none for the hungry children.
