When he died he left his mill to the eldest son, his ass to the second son, and his cat to the youngest.
The king astonished over the beautiful fat partridges, knew not out of pleasure how to contain himself, and commanded that the tom cat be given as much gold out of the treasure chamber into his sack, as he could carry: "That bring to your Herren and thank him again many times for his gift.
Thereon the tom cat stepped in, threw the sack from his hack, untied it open and shook the gold in front of the miller: "There you have something for the hoots, the king also greets you and says many thanks to you. But the tom cat, as he took off his boots, told him everything, then he said: "You do have money enough now, but it should not stay with that, tomorrow I will put my boots on again, you will become richer still, I also told the king, that you are a Graf.
So it went all days, and the tom cat brought gold home all days, and was so popular as one by the king, that he was allowed to come in and go out and prowl around in the palace, where he wanted. One time the tom cat stood in the king's kitchen by the stove and warmed himself, thereon came the coach man and cursed: "I wish king and the princess were at the executioner! I wanted to go to Wirtshaus and drink once and play cards, there I should drive them spazieren at the lake.
But the tom cat took his clothes, carried them away and hid them. No sooner was he finished with that, thereon came the king driving by; the tom cat immediately began, pathetically to lament: "Ach!
All merciful king! Mein Herr, bathed himself here in the lake, thereon a thief came and stole his clothes, that lay on the shore, now the Herr Graf is in the water and can not come out, and if he stays in longer he will calch cold and die.
The Herr Graf put on the magnificent clothes, and because the king anyway for the partridges, that he thought to have received from him, held his worth, so he had to sit with them in the carriage.
The princess was also not upset over it, because the Graf was young and handsome, and she liked him quite well. But the tom cat went ahead and came to a large grass field, where over a hundred people were making hay. He soon came to the magicians palace, stepped boldly in and in front of him. The magician looked at him contemptuously, and asked him, what he wanted. The tom cat made a Reverenz and said: "I have beard, that vou could transform yourself into every animal you chose by your own will; what a hound, fox, or even wolf concerns, that I will well believe, but of an elephant, that seems to me quite impossible, and therefore I have come to convince myself.
The tom cat made as if startled, and cried: "That is unbelievable and unheard of, the same I would never had dreamt of coming into my thoughts; but more still, all else, it would be, if you could transform yourself into such a small animal, as a mouse is, you can certainly do more, than any other magician in the world, but that will be certainly too high for you.
Directly Puss saw him in this form she jumped at him and killed him on the spot.
Then Puss ran home and bade her master go and bathe in the river, and he should see what she would do for him. He will catch the cramp and be drowned. And when they were brought, Puss took them to her master, and helped him to dress in them.
Then Puss told the coachman where to go, and ran on before and came to some reapers. The reapers were so frightened that they promised to obey her. And she ran on and told all the other labourers on the road to say the same. The king was delighted, for it was indeed a very nice castle, full of riches.
We thank you for your support. I vaguely remembered this fairy tale from when I grew up in the Netherlands.
I looked it up on a Dutch website, where it was rather short. I love this version, with the beautiful pictures.
