Cat and Mouse Story

There was a grocery shop in a town. Plenty of mice lived in that grocery shop. Food was in plenty for them.<>

They ate everything and spoiled all the bags.<>

They also wasted the bread, biscuits and fruits of the shop.<>

The grocer got really worried.<>

So, he thought “I should buy a cat and let it stay at the grocery. Only then I can save my things.”<>

He bought a nice, big fat cat and let him stay there.<>

The cat had a nice time hunting the mice and killing them. The mice could not move freely now.<>

They were afraid that anytime the cat would eat them up. The mice wanted to do something.<>

They held a meeting and all of them tweeted “We must get rid of the cat. Can someone give a suggestion”?<>

All the mice sat and brooded. A smart looking mouse stood up and said,<>

“The cat moves softly. That is the problem. If we can tie a bell around her neck, then things will be fine. We can know the movements of the cat”.<>

“Yes, that is answer,” stated all the mice.<>

An old mouse slowly stood up and asked,<>

“Who would tie the bell?” After some moments there was no one there to answer this question.<>

MORAL : Empty solutions are of no worth.<>
