“A Fable for the Early Birds” by Ignazio Apolloni, Palermo, Italy

dog cat





Once upon a time, a dog and a cat were fighting as cats and dogs do without any reason either than for the famous saying.

They would carry on and on, who knows for how long, but in this story here (all of a sudden) appears a donkey who says to both the animals:

“Hey, you! Do not behave like animals; be wise as if you were human beings: live in peace and love each other”.

Unbelievable but true. Since then the two behaved as humans, loving each other just as if they were brother and sister.
