Who will bell the cat

Once some mice lived in a house.

A big cat lived in the house too.

Every day he likes to eat ssome of the mice.

At last they said to one another,
" This must stop, or soon we shall all be eaten. Let us all think what  we can do. "

After a time, an old mouse said,
" I know what we can do. One of us must put a bell on the cat.
The bell will tell us when she is near and when we must stay at home.
After she has gone away, we can come out again. "

" Yes. That will be a wise thing to do. Let us do that, " they said.

" But which one of us will put the bell on her ? "

" I am too old, I cannot run very fast so I don't think I can do it,
 " said the old mouse.

" So are we, " said some of the others.

" And we are too little, " said the baby mice.

In the end no-one would do that.

So the bell was never put on the cat and she went on eating the mice.
