The Cat and the Youth
A CAT fell in love with a handsome Young Man, and entreated Venus to change her into a woman.
"I should think," said Venus, "you might make so trifling a change without bothering me. However, be a woman."
Afterward, wishing to see if the change were complete, Venus caused a mouse to approach, whereupon the woman shrieked and made such a show of herself that the Young Man would not marry her.Next
