A Talmudic Proverb about a Dog, a Cat, and a Mouse

Rabbi Eleazar was asked by his disciples: 'Why does a Dog know its owner while a Cat does not?' He answered them: 'If he who eats something of that from which a Mouse has eaten loses his memory, how much more so the animal which eats the Mouse itself!'

- The Babylonian Talmud, Horayoth 13a
