The Cat and Venus


Find the highlighted words in the Word Bank.

A cat fell in love with a handsome young man, and begged Venus to change her into the form of a woman. Venus consented to her request and transformed her into a beautiful damsel, so that the young man saw her and loved her, and took her home as his bride.

While the two were reclining in their chamber, Venus wishing to discover, if the cat in her change of shape had also altered her habits of life, let down a mouse in the middle of the room. The cat, forgetting her present condition completely, started up from the couch and pursued the mouse, wishing to eat it. Venus was very disappointed and again caused the cat to return to her former shape.
