Bell the Cat

There was once a grocery shop. Plenty of mice lived in that grocery shop. There used to be lots of meals for them. They ate the whole lot and spoilt all the bags. They also wasted the bread, biscuits and fruits of the shop.

The grocer used to be worried. He thinking “I will buy a cat and let it continue to be at the grocery. Only then I can store my things.” He bought a fat cat and let him continue to be there. The cat had a quality time looking at the mice and killing them. The mice could now not go freely. They have been afraid that every time the cat would consume them up. The mice held a meeting and all of them said, “We must get rid of the cat. Can anybody give a suggestion?”

All the mice sat and thought. A smart searching 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 comprehend the movements of the cat.’ “Yes, that is an accurate solution,” stated all the mice. A historical mouse slowly stood up and asked, “But who would tie the bell?” After some moments there was no one to answer this question.

Moral: Empty solutions are of no worth.
