     The Cat Maiden

There were two gods who were once discussing whether it was possible for a living being to change its nature.

 Jupiter said "Yes," but Venus said "No." So, to try the question, Jupiter turned a Cat into a Woman, and gave her to a young man for a wife.

 The wedding was correctly performed and the young couple sat down to the wedding-feast.

 "See," said Jupiter, to Venus, "how becomingly she behaves. Who could tell that yesterday she was  a Cat? Surely her nature is changed?"

"Wait a minute," replied Venus, and let loose a mouse into the room. No sooner did the bride saw the mouse than she jumped up from her seat and tried to pounce upon the mouse.

 "Ah, you see," said Venus, "Nature will out."
