The Cat and the Cock

There was once a very hungry Cat. He kept searching for something good to eat. He said, “Oh! I have to eat something. My stomach is making strange noises.”

Then suddenly the Cat saw a Cock. The Cock was pecking at some grains. The Cat thought, “Ah! There is a good Cock. I wish I could eat him!’

But then he thought, ‘Oh, how can I just eat him? What reasonable excuse should I find to do so?’

After thinking for some timB3e, the Cat had an idea. He went to the Cock and accused him, “You are a nuisance to men. You start crowing in the night ¬≠time. You don’t let them sleep.”

The Cock was a little surprised. He defended himself by saying, “I crow only to help people. I do it for the benefit of men. I crow so that they might rise in time for their work.”

But the Cat was very hungry. So he replied in anger, “You have given me enough apologies. But I am hungry and I shall not remain supperless.”

The Cock started to run. But the Cat pounced on the Cock and ate him up.

Unnecessary talk with the enemy does not help.
