This MIGHT be a Krazy Kat and Ignatz Mouse cartoon. This is an approx. 150’ fragment (in 7 pieces), Gevaert Belgium edgecode, no intertitles or titles.

Plot synopsis:
A baby gets out of bed and into mischief with several mice and a cat. The mother? Seems to sleep-walk and get awakened by the mice, before they trip her.
This is a movie of Otto Messmer, released between 1920 and 1926, probably "Felix Minds the Kid"??

The cartoon is Bud and Susie in KITCHEN BEDROOM AND BATH (1921), from Paramount Magazine #3954.

From the copyright synopsis: "Back to Bud's mother - goes to the bureau drawer - mouse jumps out suddenly, frightening her - she jumps up and down in terror [still 2] - the first mouse calls for help - a mouse brings a rope and they make the lady jump the rope - finally she faints [still 3, with left mouse still holding rope]
...[The cat] chases the mouse into the bathroom [still 4] - but the mouse squirts water at [the cat] and runs out..."

Should be a film starring Felix the Cat as described here:

I know this isn't "Felix Minds The Kid"; it's on Youtube in its entirety. This doesn't look to be a genuine Otto Messmer, maybe a knockoff. The cat's body is too elongated to be Felix, and the bow appears to be this cat's identifying trademark. (Unlike Felix.) Apparently, a lot of imitators rode on Felix's coattails in the 20's.
