Cat as arbitrator

An old cat fable told by the French author La Fontaine (1621–1695) goes this way: a rabbit and weasel go to an old cat to ask him to settle a dispute between them. The cat tells them to sit on a scale so he can “weigh the case.” They do so—and while they are near him, he kills them. Well, it does settle their dispute, but not in the way they had hoped.
