Patakie of the Iwori Osa sign:



There was a man and a woman, who had a gold ring, which was an amulet, and whoever possessed it always had enough to live. But they did not know it and sold the ring, for little money, and with it luck.

As soon as the ring left their hands, the couple began to have work and to become impoverished, they did not know where to get the money to feed themselves.

They had a Dog and a Cat, which starved along with them. The two animals conferred to see how they could help their masters and restore luck.

After the conference, they see their masters discussing the matter and hear when he tells her that he had reached the conclusion that it was all about recovering the ring they had sold.

The Cat said: - The ring is well kept in a box that cannot be opened.- «Take a mouse- said the Dog. The mouse will gnaw on the box and open it. And tell him that if he refuses, you will eat him ».

The advice was very good to the Cat. She went with him to the house where the ring was. The Dog was walking behind the Cat and thus they came to a very wide river, and since the Cat could not swim, the Dog took him on his back and passed him to the other side of the river. So the Cat got to where the mouse was, then he took it to where the box was.

The mouse had to gnaw on the box and took out the ring. He caught it in the snout and gave it to the cat. The latter returned to the bank of the river, where the Dog was, who passed him to the other side, and then, both triumphant, they set out on their way back, to bring the amulet to the masters.

The Dog could not walk quickly, because when an obstacle was in its path it had to go around it. Instead, the cat would climb and cross it, which is why it arrived long before the Dog and gave the ring to its masters.

The Cat is a good animal - the man said to his wife - we will always feed him and we will take care of him like our son. When the Dog arrived at the house, they beat him and insulted him, because he had not worked to bring the ring.

The Cat was sitting, in abundance of everything, in the house without saying a word. The Dog was outraged at the Cat, because he had taken his reward from him. And every time he saw it, he chased after it to catch it. And from that day on, cat and dog have been enemies.
