The Cat and the Birds

A CAT, hearing that the Birds in a certain aviary were ailing, dressed himself up as a physician, and, taking his cane and a bag of instruments becoming his profession, went to call on them. He knocked at the door and inquired of the inmates how they all did, saying that if they were ill, he would be happy to prescribe for them and cure them. They replied, "We are all very well, and shall continue so, if you will only be good enough to go away, and leave us as we are."

"Nonsense," declared the Cat as he forced his way in. "Now let's have a look." The Cat pinned a Bird's head to the ground with his paw and clawed its chest open. "A simple operation. There's no need for alarm."

The birds remained skeptical.

"I'll need to take a sample," the Cat declared. When he began to eat the patient, chaos erupted in the aviary.

A week later the Cat became deathly ill.
