Aesop’s Fables – Die Katze und die Vögel


Once upon a time, there was a cat which was getting old. The cat could not find something to eat and he was hungry.

Mr. Cat thought, “PURR! PURR! I am a smart cat. Let me trick the birds.”

He went around listening to the birds. Mr. Cat had very sharp ears.


Es war einmal eine Katze, die alt wurde. Die Katze konnte nichts zu fressen finden und hatte Hunger.

Herr Katze dachte: „SCHNURREN! SCHNURREN! Ich bin eine kluge Katze. Lass mich die Vögel austricksen. “

Er ging herum und hörte den Vögeln zu. Herr Katze hatte sehr scharfe Ohren.




He heard the birds say, “Mr. Tweet is sick. He has such a cold. We should take him to a doctor.”

Mr. Cat thought, “PURR! PURR! I should pretend to be a doctor.”

Mr. Cat wore a white suit and a pair of spectacles. He also carried a small leather briefcase.

He knocked on the door of Mr. Tweet and said, “Hello Mrs. Tweet. Is everything well?”


Er hörte die Vögel sagen: „Herr Tweet ist krank. Er hat so eine Erkältung. Wir sollten ihn zu einem Arzt bringen. “

Herr Katze dachte: „SCHNURREN! SCHNURREN! Ich sollte vorgeben, ein Arzt zu sein.“

Herr Katze trug einen weißen Anzug und eine Brille. Er trug auch eine kleine Aktentasche aus Leder.

Er klopfte an die Tür von Herr Tweet und sagte: „Hallo Frau Tweet. Ist alles gut? “



Mrs. Tweet was very smart. She immediately saw the cat. She smiled and said, “Tweet! Tweet!”

Mr. Cat said, “I am a famous doctor. I can cure Mr. Tweet. I can give him medicines.”

Mrs. Tweet said, “Tweet! Tweet! You are a smart cat. We are very well. We would be healthier if you don’t eat us. Please leave us alone.”


Frau Tweet war sehr schlau. Sie sah sofort die Katze. Sie lächelte und sagte: „Tweet! Tweet! ”

Herr Katze sagte: „Ich bin ein berühmter Arzt. Ich kann Herr Tweet heilen. Ich kann ihm Medikamente geben. “

Frau Tweet sagte: „Tweet! Tweet! Du bist eine kluge Katze. Uns geht es sehr gut. Wir wären gesünder, wenn Sie uns nicht fessen würden. Bitte lass uns in Ruhe. “
