"The Cat That Walked by Himself," by Rudyard Kipling

     Of course the Man was wild too. He was dreadfully wild. He didn’t 

even begin to be tame till he met the Woman, and she told him that 

she did not like living in his wild ways. She picked out a nice dry Cave,

instead of a heap of wet leaves, to lie down in; and she strewed clean

sand on the floor; and she lit a nice fire of wood at the back of the 

Cave; and she hung a dried wild-horse skin, tail-down, across the 

opening of the Cave; and she said, ‘Wipe your feet, dear, when you 

come in, and now we’ll keep house.’
