Mister Rogers arrives with a can of Neighborhood Cat Food. Opening the can, he sits on the floor as he feeds his cat, Pink Paws. Enjoying time with his pet, Mister Rogers sings Just For Once before sharing a film about a time when he and his son Jamie took Pink Paws to the veterinarian.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Handyman Negri visits Corney, X the Owl, and Henrietta Pussycat to let them try out the special "hop cap" received by King Friday. Everyone agrees that hopping is fun for a minute, but they prefer the why they are without the cap. X, Henrietta, and Handyman Negri sing I'm Glad I'm the Way I Am.

At the Platypus mound, Elsie Jean is cleaning her bagpipes as Dr. Bill shares that he has been very busy lately. Taking a moment for himself, Dr. Bill plays the bagpipes before four patients arrive for an appointment.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about how he enjoys playing the piano when he is not busy. Officer Clemmons stops by and sings I'm Glad I'm the Way I Am.
