Hypocritical Cat
Linoleum print by Farangis
1986

Now the cat went to the church, to take penance for the murder she committed. «Oh God» she wholeheartedly prayed, «how much repentance I feel for that what I did. Never again, and this I swear, a mouse should suffer from my hands. As a sign of repentance I will give two pounds of bread to the needy.» And so it happened that a mouse who coincidentally sat behind the pulpit, overheard the cat's remorseful lamentation and her oath to better herself. Quickly this mouse ran to its fellows, to tell of what it had witnessed: That the cat would be regretful about her deed, and that she had sworn to live in peace with the mice.
