Meanwhile, the burglars gathered and
the ringleader decided to send one of
them to check whether the ghosts were
still in the house as it was dark. The man who was sent approached
the house quietly, shaking with fear. He
reached the door and stood to listen.
Since there was no noise, he went into
the kitchen. He wanted to light a fire. So,
thinking the cats glowing eyes
were burning coals, he held a
candle next to them, hoping it
would catch light.
The cat jumped on his face
and started scratching him. In
panic, he stepped back,
stepping on the dog, who bit
the man’s leg fiercely. The man couldn’t see anything
and began to run around in
the dark in a blind panic. He was kicked by the donkey.
Then the cockerel crowed and
started flying around.
