Here are three cats and three cradles.
They all tell the same story*,
but they tell it very differently.
An illustration from
Dutch Fairy Tales for Young Folks
by William Elliot Griffs.
The cat in this story is Dubbelje, because she is twice as loving.
The Inundation of The Biesbosch in 1421 (1856)
I have no idea what this cat's name was, but it looks authentically worried.
You should never abandon your story because it has been told—every story has been told.
