Plot Edit

Sam is trying to learn how to juggle with glasses but keeps smashing them. Cat, who had just finished shopping, comes and says that the glasses were going to be hard to drink from. Sam says she had once tried to do it with knives, but it didn't work. Cat tells Sam about a holiday she made up. It's called Yay Day and it's all about giving presents to people. Yay Day was that Saturday.

The day before Yay Day, everyone gets ready. Sam doesn't want to buy Cat a present because the last time she got Cat a present, Cat snuck a look at it and ruined the surprise. Cat can't help herself with that unless she has her special vitamins. Sam ends up caving and buying Cat a present. That night however, Cat sneaks out of bed and looks at the present Sam gave her. All she finds are mouthwash and foot wash.

The next day, Cat is furious with Sam but doesn't tell her that she snooped. When everyone's supposed to take their Yay Day present, Cat takes the gift she wanted to give to Sam and goes to her room with it. Then, Herb arrives at the window with a dirty pillow. Cat gets an idea and trades Sam's present with the dirty pillow. Then, she puts the dirty pillow in the box and gives it to Sam. Cat takes the present Sam had gotten for cat and finds the mouthwash and foot wash. Sam is surprised to see the two bottles in there, but then realizes that she accidentally switched the tags. She had intended to give those to Goomer because he loved mouthwash and foot wash. Sam had gotten Cat a jump rope she had wanted. The letter had said that Cat was one of the few people she liked. Then, she leaves. Cat finds her near a sidewalk crack later, watching people trip repeatedly. Sam opens up about how she hoped she would have a nice gift since she never got a nice gift from anyone while growing up (her mother gave her a shovel with meatballs). Cat apologizes and explains and then, they both starts laughing at the people tripping.
