     The Cat and the Cock

There was a Cat who caught a Cock, and thought that how he might find a reasonable excuse for eating him.

 He accused him of being a pest to men by crowing in the nighttime and not letting them to sleep.

 The Cock defended himself by saying that he did this for their benefit , that they might rise in time for their labours.

 The Cat replied, "Although you abound in specious apologies, I shall not remain supper less"; and he made a meal of him.
