How do you know I'm mad?" asks Alice. "You must be or you wouldn't have come here," the cat says. Alice then contradicts the cat when he claims to growl. "Call it what you like," he says. Then, in a  clairvoyant moment, he casually mentions that he'll see Alice at the Queen's croquet game. At this  point, Alice hasn't even been  invited  to the game, nor has she indicated any intention of going. But  like the Frog-Footman, the Cheshire-Cat transfigures reality and anticipates events. He's not  surprised that the baby became a pig; he's only uncertain whether Alice said "pig" or "fig." Ultimately,  his smile is his most enduring and least confusing aspect. Alice complains that his vanishing and  reappearing "so suddenly" make her dizzy. She asks him not to disappear; his response is to "slow  down" his disappearance so that he appears to  dissolve
