A Cat, hearing that the Birds in a certain aviary were ailing
dressed himself up as a physician, and, taking his cane and
a bag of instruments becoming his profession, went to call
on them. He knocked at the door and inquired of the inmates
how they all did, saying that if they were ill, he would be
happy to prescribe for them and cure them. They replied,
"We are all very well, and shall continue so, if you will only
be good enough to go away, and leave us as we are."

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
