A Fox and a Cat

Once upon a time,

a cat ran into a fox in the woods.

The cat spoke to the fox with a smile.

“Hello, fox.

How has your hunting been going?

There hasn’t been so much game lately and hunting became a bit difficult, right?

But since you are smart, you must be able to do well no matter what.”

After staring at the cat, the fox answered reluctantly.

“You think I am good at hunting?

Maybe a little, compared to you.

… so what kind of method do you know?”

“I only know one way

to get away from a dog.” The cat said.

“What is that?”

The cat answered shamefully.

“When a dog comes after me, I’ll climb on a tree immediately.

That’s all.”

"Oh, that's all?"

The fox was surprised hammily.

“I know more than 100 methods to get away.

And I know how to trap others, too.

Everything is in my brain.

Do you want me to show you one, you poor cat?”

It was when the fox was busy talking…

A hunter accompanied by 4 dogs was coming near them.

The cat climbed on a tree immediately.

Now that branches and leaves on the tree could cover the cat completely,

he felt safe.

“Fox, you’d better do something now!”

When the cat warned the fox, it was already too late.

The fox was caught by the dogs.

“What’s the matter with the fox?

He knows more than 100 methods to get away.

… Oh, I see.

He got caught while wondering

which method to use.

Good thing I only knew one.

I'm so lucky."

The cat said to himself

and sighed in relief "Hah."
