Merchant’s Daughter 1900 by Blue Ruin1 on Flickr.Via Flickr:
The “Merchant’s Daughter” by Mizuno Toshikata (1866-1908). Based on a Japanese fairy-tale called the “cat guardian” or “the story of the faithful cat”.
The young daughter of a rich wine merchant in Osaka, was constantly followed around by the family’s tom-cat. The father, thinking that the tom-cat had fallen in love with his daughter and planned to bewitch her, determined to kill the cat at the first opportunity. However, the cat appeared to his master in a dream, telling him that it was a giant rat living in his granary which was in love with his daughter, and that the cat was following the young girl to protect her. The cat told his master that he was no match for the rat by himself, but there was a famous cat named Buchi (Spots, Speckles or Mottles) that his master should borrow and that the two cats would defeat the monster rat. The master did as the cat asked, both cats went into the granary and fought a fierce battle with the monster rat, and although the rat was killed, both cats were so badly injured that they died from their wounds. The two cats were buried with honours in the neighbouring temple, and the family still celebrated the death of the valiant cat one hundred years after the event.
