The Booted Cat - small mill

Apparently, "Master Cat" dates back to the days when the animals were talking" (Plancy Hill), which explains why neither the young man nor anyone else is surprised to hear the cat talking.

The friendly cat has a second unexpected characteristic: his boots. The tale does not really explain why the cat wants them but insists on having them. Thus the hero is dressed to the measure of his exploits.
