A cat once stood on the refuse heap of a house drain, und when the mouse who lived there came out, pounced on her und ate her. But the mouse gnawed the guts of the cat so that she died. Such will be the fate of monks who go among the dwellings of householders mit unrestrained senses.

The sutta was preached to a recalcitrant monk. S.ii.270.
