The Cat and the Mouse 

A long time ago there was a cat and a mouse that agreed to travel together. As they walked along, the cat's mouth began to water because she was so hungry. The cat began to yawn and to stare at the mouse. The cat's eyes got bigger and bigger.

The mouse was surprised to see the cat's big eyes staring at him. The mouse said, "I can't travel with you today. Your staring eyes scare me. You travel on your own today, and I'll do the same." The cat asked, "What did I do wrong ? Whenever I see a mouse, I always yawn, and my mouth always waters."

But the mouse went his own way. He said, "I'm not traveling with you any more. From now on you are on your own."

Lesson: Don't trust someone you really don't know.
