First he catches a rabbit and takes it to the king, saying that it is a gift from his master. Then, by cunning, he manages to get some fine clothes for his master, and finally a castle. The king is convinced that Puss-in-Boot's master is worthy of his daughter's hand, and the tale ends with a wedding. Dick Whittington and His Cat - Dick Whittington lives in the countryside. He goes to London to make his fortune. He meets a rich man and his daughter and works in their house. He finds a cat and the cat catches the mice in his room. The rich man goes on a trading journey to a far-away country, and the rich man suggests that all his staff that they invest something in the venture. Dick reluctantly sends his cat. Dick's cat turns out to be a good investment. The tale ends much later, when Dick gains a fortune.
