Hopeful Mice Bringing Presents
Linoleum print by Farangis

You can imagine how happy the mice were. Seven of the most dignified officials of theirs decided to go bring the cat presents, as a sign of their thankfulness for her prudent decision. One brought a glass of wine, one a large platter with saffron-rice, one an elegant bowl filled with walnuts and raisins, one brought a basket with sweet golden-brown dates, one brought cheese, one yoghurt, butter and bread and, finally, one brought lemon ice. With great respect they bowed in front of the cat: «Please, honorable cat» the seven mice entreated her «take these presents from us, your most unworthy servants.»
