M0840 (not in Perry). Source: Desbillons 9.5 (adapted into prose; shortened). This fable is not in Perry’s catalog; Desbillons is retelling La Fontaine 10.10, who knew the story from Bidpai. Compare the fable of the city mouse and the country mouse, #196, or the story of the rich man and his neighbor, #997.
