was a miller who left no more estate to the three sons he
had than his mill, his ass, and his cat. The partition was
soon made. Neither scrivener nor attorney was sent for. They
would soon have eaten up all the poor patrimony. The eldest
had the mill, the second the ass, and the youngest nothing
but the cat. The poor young fellow was quite comfortless at
having so poor a lot.
brothers, said he, may get their living handsomely
enough by joining their stocks together; but for my part,
when I have eaten up my cat, and made me a muff of his skin,
I must die of hunger.
Cat, who heard all this, but made as if he did not, said to
him with a grave and serious air:
not thus afflict yourself, my good master. You have nothing
else to do but to give me a bag and get a pair of boots made
for me that I may scamper through the dirt and the brambles,
and you shall see that you have not so bad a portion in me
as you imagine.
Cats master did not build very much upon what he said.
He had often seen him play a great many cunning tricks to
catch rats and mice, as when he used to hang by the heels,
or hide himself in the meal, and make as if he were dead;
so that he did not altogether despair of his affording him
some help in his miserable condition. When the Cat had what
he asked for he booted himself very gallantly, and putting
his bag about his neck, he held the strings of it in his two
forepaws and went into a warren where was great abundance
of rabbits. He put bran and sow-thistle into his bag, and
stretching out at length, as if he had been dead, he waited
for some young rabbits, not yet acquainted with the deceits
of the world, to come and rummage his bag for what he had
put into it.
antiqued paper is delicately laced with a subtle hint of gold
in the creases creating an almost magical look. (Although
its difficult to catch with a camera, you can see in
the image below how the shimmering is caught in the light)
