The Smart But Lazy Man (21)
Shut up! you are a wicked man, you have been starving this poor cat when you have a cow to feed its milk to the cat, the King said.
Dene did not say any more. He went into his house and brought out the black pot and poured some milk in it. He pushed the black pot towards the cat.
The cat thinking it was hot milk as it recognised the black pot ran away in fear.
The King and the chiefs looked at one another. They were ashamed to have accused Dene of not feeding the cat and the King apologized to him.
