Cat Air

The Chatam Sofer – the Rav of Bratislava was known to be very skeptical when it came to dissuading someone with strong arguments. To back this up, he used to relate the following story:

Two Jews had spotted a dark silhouette on a fence. One said – it’s a crow, the other – no, it’s a cat.
-Let’s throw a rock at it, suggested the first one, and if it flies then it’s a crow, if not, it’s a cat.
And that is what they did and it flew.
-I did say it was a crow, uttered the first one.

-Had I not seen this with my own eyes, mumbled the second one, I would’ve never believed that a cat could fly.
