Once upon a time there resided a poor miller who had three sons. When he died, all he held was divided between his sons. The mill he left to the oldest donkey to the second. and to the youngest he left the cat.
The youngest son was really unhappy. “Alas! ” he said. “this cat is useless to me and I am too poor to take care of her. ‘ While he was sitting and wondering what he should do to get his food.
Puss jumped and said, “Don’t worry master. I will get your living for you. Do what I tell you and find out how much I can do to benefit you. Only buy me a hat. a pair of boots and a large bag. ‘
The miller’s son invested his last pennies and gave her a really smart hat, set of brown colored boots along with a nice large bag. The cat put on her new pair of boots and at once went out into the garden. This was Puss-in-Boots.
She picked up some carrots from the backyard and put them in the bag. Puss went into the warren and put her bag down with its mouth wide open so that the carrots could possibly be seen. She hid herself behind a low hedge.
As the little greedy rabbits sniffed the fresh carrots. hopped into the bag to eat it. Puss jumped quickly and pulled the thread off the bag, and carried them off to her master.
Puss carried the bag with fat rabbit on her shoulder and arrived at the king’s palace. She bowed before the king, and said, ‘Your majesty. I have something special for you from the estate of my master, the Prince of Carabas. Taking a fine rabbit out of her bag, she said, ‘My master has sent this rabbit for you with his respects. The king accepted the gift and ordered his head cook to dress the rabbit for dinner.
In the days that, Puss in Boots frequently visited the king, holding hares, partridges, and parrots, presenting all of them to the king in the name of Prince of Carabas. Inform your master, said the king, that I am very happy to accept his gifts.
One day, they walked to a river, and the cat asked the young man to get undressed and to enter into the water. “Wait for me there” the cat said, as he putt on the young man’s boots. The cat went to see the king and said -“Please help my owner the prince, who -has been attacked by some bandits”.

But soon after, troubles started. “The king would like to know where my castle is. What should I tell him” said the young man.
The cat looked for the king and said “My master invites you to pay a visit to his castle next week. ” The king was happy and accepted the invitation.
The cat visited a neighboring kingdom and discovered of the existence of a castle where an ogre lived. The cat reached the castle and thought of an idea to get rid of the ogre.
