Whittington and his Cat
English Fairy Tales Collected by Joseph Jacobs: http://bit.ly/35WYndM
Audiobook with subtitle
Dick Whittington and His Cat is the English folklore surrounding the real-life Richard Whittington (c. 1354â€“1423), wealthy merchant and later Lord Mayor of London. The legend describes his rise from poverty-stricken childhood with the fortune he made through the sale of his cat to a rat-infested country. However, the real Whittington did not come from a poor family of common stock, and there is no compelling evidence supporting the stories about the cat, or even whether he owned one.
