One day, the Mice had a meeting.
They wanted to free themselves from their enemy, the Cat.
Beating the Cat was ideal, but they at least wanted to know when the Cat was coming.
They were living in fear. They wanted to change the situation.
Many plans were discussed, but no one could think of a good plan
At last a very young Mouse got up and said:
"I have a plan that seems very simple, but I know it will be successful.
We need to hang a bell around the Cat's neck.
When we hear the bell ring, we will know our enemy is coming.
All of the Mice were surprised no one has thought of this plan before.
Everyone was celebrating. However, an old Mouse spoke.
"I agree with the young Mouse's plan.
But let me ask one question:
Who is going to put the bell on the Cat?"
Lesson: It is one thing to say that something should be done, but very different to do it.
