0h, no, the cat wasn't asleep and comes bounding towards you as soon as you step out into the hallway. Instantly your little froggy mind panics and falls to pieces. While you're trying to pick up the pieces the cat is bouncing towards you.

You decide you want to...
    see how your spells work when performed by a frog, and yell KER-MIT.
    run between his legs and dive into a hole in the wall where he can't reach you.
    wave byebye...  jump over his head and hop onto the table and out the window
    or do a double reverse flip back into the room.

Otherwise you can can try escaping by teleporting into the Maze:
    downward,   forward,   backward, or  cross-ways,
