FLORIAN'S FABLES.
Fables of Florian19.png

FABLE XI.
THE TWO CATS.

Two cats of ancient pedigree,
The finest of their race e'er seen,
Were diff'rent in a great degree,
For one was fat and 'tother lean.
The elder daily had a feast,
Like senator, or judge, or priest;
Was round and portly, fresh, and sleek,
