Comment to the artwork:
There lived a cat, small, but very reasonable creature; the reason has prompted it to make friends with the strongest animal, to be in safety. So it has approached to tsar of animals - to a lion and has told: «Let us be friends, your prey is my prey, my hunting is your hunting ». The lion, certainly, has agreed, in fact the cat was such courageous. They were friends long and all time were together, but once when they slept, the elephant has stepped on a lion there and has crushed it. The cat has thought: « this animal is stronger than a lion » and has made friends with the elephant, but their friendship was absolutely short, the African hunter has come and has killed the elephant, has charged with it the carriage and has carried at home. « Well, how strong this animal! » - and the cat has solved and has run for the hunter. And the hunter has come home where it was waited by the young wife, he has given her extraction and the weapon, and himself has gone to have a rest. « Well and well! » - the cat was surprised, - « And this animal if the one who is stronger than the elephant, gives for her the extraction! How strong she is! » The woman liked tender purring and soft fur of cats, which it rubbed about her legs and she has let the cat live in the house. And there was a cat to live at female legs, and is closer to kitchen.
