Aesop's Fables by  J. H. Stickney





HUNGRY Cat, who had tried in vain to find a Mouse for her supper, at last caught a young Cock.

"You are a noisy creature," she said to him, "and have lived long enough. You disturb every one in the house by your loud crowing in the morning."

"You are mistaken," answered the Cock; "I disturb no one. I crow to wake the family. They would not know when to get up but for me."

"Never mind," said the Cat; "don't trouble yourself to make excuses; I have had no breakfast and no dinner; I shall eat you for my supper."
