Then,

to

his

surprise,

the

old

cat

began

to

talk.

“You

have

always

been

kind

to

me,”

said

Puss.

“So

do

as

I

say

from

now

on,

and

I

will

make

your

fortune.

Get

me

a

hat,

a

pair

of

boots

and

a

bag.”

The

millers

son

did

as

he

was

told.

The

cat

pulled

on

the

red

boots.

“Now

I

am

Puss

-in-

Boots,”

he

said,

and

he

hurried

off

with

the

bag

over

his

shoulder.
