Mummy mouse was taking her three pups (that’s what baby mice are called) on an educational outing through the house.
As they went into the kitchen, mum saw that a cat had spotted them and deviously had plans to eat the mice for dinner.
“Ooh dinner!” Thought the cat.
“Quick, kids”, mum said. “Get into the corner.”
As the cat approached, mum placed herself between her litter and the cat.
She waited and when the cat was very close, she stood up on her hind legs and yelled in dog, “bark bark bark bark!”
The cat took fright and ran away.
“See kids? That’s why I stress the need to learn a foreign language!” Mother mouse said to her pups.
