128 - The Cat and the Mice



A certain house was overrun with Mice. 

A Cat, discovering this, made her way into it and began to catch and eat them one by one. Fearing for their lives, the Mice kept themselves close in their holes. 

The Cat was no longer able to get at them and perceived that he must tempt them forth by some device. 

For this purpose he jumped upon a peg, and suspending himself from it, pretended to be dead. 

One of the Mice, peeping stealthily out, saw him and said, "Ah, my good sir, even though you should turn into a meal-bag, we will not come near you."

The evil ones, when they cannot damage his victims directly, look for an indirect way to achieve it. Do not trust in what is offered to you very easy, pretty and attractive.
