Nóra has a surprise for the twins - a new pet.  Naoise knows what it is but the others have to guess.  They sing a guessing song before they meet their two new rabbits, Cathal and Coco.  The magic bubble machine shows us how other children take care of their pets, giving them water to drink and the right food to eat.

After this, Nóra tells them a story about Ciarán and his dog Rua, and they learn how important it is to take proper care of their pets.  They fetch food and water for the rabbits but when Naoise tries to help, he soon learns that rabbits don’t eat ice cream or yoghurt and that they like fruit and vegetables.  The twins tell him that even though they have new friends, Naoise is still Number One - but Naoise is still sad - he has no pet of his own. Thankfully, Nóra has one more surprise - a special pet for Naoise, a caterpillar.
Na Dódaí do their butterfly dance before they say goodbye to their friends.

Tá féirín ag Nóra faoi choinne an chúpla – peata nua. Tá a fhios ag Naoise cad é atá ann ach caithfidh gach duine eile tomhas a dhéanamh. Ceolann siad amhrán tomhais sula mbuaileann siad leis an dá choinín nua acu. Taispeánann meaisín na mboilgeacha dúinn conas a thugann na páistí aire dá bpeataí agus iad ag tabhairt uisce dóibh le hól agus an bia ceart le hithe.
