Belling the Cat – Short Story for Kids
Once there was a big warehouse, where bags of rice were stored. Many rats were living in the warehouse.
There was a stray cat that often came to the warehouse for his food.
The cat would silently come there without any sound and chase after the rats and eat them.
Every day that cat comes and hunts down the rats. All the rats were very frightened and decided to have a meeting.
They all gathered together and started their discussion. The rats were very confused and couldn’t able to think of any solution to stop the cat.
Suddenly a rat said, ” We should tie a bell around the cat’s neck”. If they tie a bell around the cat’s neck, the rats can hear the sound of the bell if the cat comes.
Every rat thought that it was a great idea. But in the end, a rat asked “Who will tie the bell around the cat’s neck?”
