18. The Lion and the Cat. It happened that the animals were invited by the lion to a great feast, including the cat. The lion asked what they would be pleased to eat, wanting to satisfy each one. And the cat said, "Rats and mice." The lion thought, "Unless they all partake of this dish, it would be bad manners." At last the lion brought forth a dish of rats for all the animals, and the cat ate contentedly. The other animals grumbled, saying, "Fi, fi! What dish is he serving us?" And thus the whole feast was spoiled. Thus it happens that people often prepare a great feast; but there are certain cat types and nothing pleases them unless they have a nasty drunken feast, and on account of them everyone, like it or not, are kept until nightfall at the feast with the result that they all get drunk.
