The poor alligator was taken far inland by a tsunami. Now his only source of water is a tiny pond that barely fits his body, and doesn't even provide much food.
The worst part about this pond is that the only thing for the alligator to eat is cheese (ち). Cheese may be yummy for humans, but alligators hate it. They'd rather eat the cow the cheese came from. Sadly, this pond is full of cheese.
