The Inexperienced Mouse.
Once, a little mouse asked his mother, “Mother let me go out see and the world”.
The mother mouse said, “Okay child. But, be careful”.
The mouse came out of his hold and started walking. He saw a colourful cock. As he had never seen a cock before, he got frightened by the sharp beak, colourful feathers and the red crown of the cock, He ran away thinking, “What a horrible creature”.
After some time he came across a pussy cat. “What a soft animal!” he thought, “So handsome fur! And striking eyes!”
When he returned home he explained his day’s visit to his mother. The mother said, “The cock is really harmless. But the soft cat is real enemy”.
