The Fight and Victory of the Mice
Linoleum print by Farangis

In secrecy she also got armed for the war, and called together a huge army of cats wild as lions from all lands of the world. With them she then rushed down the mountains into the desert, towards the mice.

A fierce battle started. Both sides fought heroically and both sides brought down so many of their enemies that the casualties were uncountable. There the cat abruptly managed to get in the front of her army, but one mouse had been following her and hit the cats horse at its foot. The cat fell from her horse, and the army of mice yelled: «Stop the leader! Take him in custody! We have won!» Drums were beaten; the mice were triumphant. They tied the cats paws together and laid her in chains. «She should be hanged, the evil one!» the king remarked.
