They discussed, and but didnt like, many plans.

Then, a young mouse stood up,
Deharay, hade nishte anchowa teseu
and said “ we should put a bell around the cat's neck”.

What a good idea! the other mice said.

Oh yes, the bell will tell us the cat is coming, then we can run”

They were happy with the idea,
