The Fox and the Cat (Animal story with Moral)

One day, while wandering in the forest, a fox came across a cat. Soon, the two animals got engaged in a conversation. As the talks went on, the fox began exaggerating his abilities of tricking his enemies. "I have a lot of tricks in my bag to esccape my enemies," said the fox.

"I have only one trick to escape, and I rely on that," replied the cat.

Now, just as they were talking, the cat spotted a pack of hounds coming their way. The cat quickly climbed a tree and hid herself among the branches. Once the cat was up, she called out to the fox, "This is my plan to escape. What have you thought to escape the hounds?" The fox was taken aback. He tried to think of a trick to save himself from  the hounds, but it was too late. The hounds soon caught up with the scared fox, and tore him apart.

Moral of this story is : "Better one safe way than a hundred on which you can not reckon "

From: "Aesop's Fables"
