A Moral Story : Belling The Cat

Let us enjoy reading this story of
Belling The Cat.

There lived many mice in a grocer’s shop. They ate plenty of grains and the grocer suffered heavy loss. So, he brought a fat cat to catch the mice. The mice were worried. They held a meeting to drive away the cat.

A smart-looking mouse suggested that the cat moved softly and swiftly. They decided to tie a bell round its neck. So that when the cat moves, the mice would become aware of the cat. All the mice agreed to this decision.

The old mouse said, “Can you tell me who is to bell the cat?"

There was no reply.

Their decision is not yet executed.
