The Pike and the Cat
Let the cobbler make the cake, and the cook mend the shoes, and you can be sure that nothing good will come of them. There is nothing worse in the world than to give up your line of work and go into another business.
If only I could catch mice like a cat, thought the pike. Maybe it's just crazy, maybe it's just used to the taste of fish. So he ran to the cat and said, "Don't refuse me at once! I beg you, can you let me spend the whole day in your warehouse, I want to taste the rats!
"Yes! 'Said the Cat kindly.' You must study hard. Stay focused, or you will suffer. 'Nothing is difficult if you put your heart into it." There is truth in that old saying."
"What are you talking about? I can catch fish, but CAN't I catch a mouse?" "Said the pike to the cat.
"Well then, I wish you success!" "Said the cat, smiling.
The cat went away by himself, and when he came back, he suddenly remembered the pike. So he decided to take a look inside the warehouse. There lay the pike, horribly white, his eyes wide and his mouth open. A mouse had bitten off his tail.
Seeing what had become of the pike, the cat quickly dragged him back out into the pond.
"There!" "Now you see, Pike, that I leave it to you to catch mice.
Do what you can. When you want to try something new, know what you can do and be prepared.
“活该！” 猫说， “梭子鱼啊，现在你应该明白了吧，像逮老鼠这样的事情，还是由我来做吧！”
