The Mice in Council

A number of Mice once had a meeting to decide the best means of ridding their community of a Cat that had killed many of their companions. Several plans were brought forth and rejected. At last, a young Mouse suggested that a bell be hung round the tyrants neck, that they might be warned of her coming and be able to escape.

Everyone loved the idea, except one old Mouse, who was silent for some time, but then got up and said, “The plan is very clever, and would be successful if carried out. I would like to know who is going to bell the cat.”

It is easier to make a suggestion than to carry it out.
