Description

Three mice are teasing and poking with their tails a cat sleeping on a sofa while in the background a young couple is about to sneak out of the door.
The caption reads in the original French: N’éveille pas le chat qui dort. This proverb has an English equivalent in Let sleeping dogs lie.
