A cat and mouse decide to live together and buy a pot of fat to get them through the winter; however, they decide to keep the pot in a safe place — under an altar at a church — and only use it if necessary. The cat turns and eats the mouse. The end.

A miller tells the king that his daughter can spin straw into gold, which, of course, is a complete lie. Fortunately, or unfortunately depending on how you want to look at it, a little creature-like man helps her out — once for her necklace, twice for her ring, and thrice for her first born.
