Cat and the Rooster

posted in Rooster |

A Cat caught a Rooster, and pondered how he might find a reasonable excuse for eating him. He accused him of being a nuisance to people by crowing in the nighttime and not permitting them to sleep.

The Rooster defended himself by saying that he did this for the benefit of people, that they might rise in time for their labors.

The Cat replied, “Although you abound in specious apologies, I shall not remain supperless”; and he made a meal of him.

Moral: Evildoers will always find a justification for their actions.
