Proud of his experience, the black cat said to himself, Alexander the great overcame almost the whole world in ten years. The whole world fears his name, so what should I do? Ill consecrate my whole time, effort and talents to kill mice and rid the whole world of them.

The mice heard of it; they were terrified and remained in their burrows for a long time. One day a mouse peaked with his head from his burrow and saw something very strange. He saw the black cat lying down with his back against the wall, and his head hanging down and a ribbon around his head. The mouse called the rest of the troop and said, Look the cruel black cat has died. He didnt find any of us to eat. May be because of his violence, he hurt someone so the owner of the house punished him and hanged him. Lets attend his funeral and make fun of that beast.

The mice came out of their burrows and headed towards the killed black cat. When they came very close, he fell on them caught one of them and played with it then ate it.

Days passed by and the mice remained hiding, so the cat thought of another trick to attack the mice. He wrapped himself in flour and became all white. He went and hid beside the trunk of a tree.

A mouse looked out of a small opening and when he saw the cat, he told him, What a deceitful cat, Youre that black cat and even if you become a sack of flour we wont trust you for, you are deceitful.

→ English translation of the story here at St-Takla.org: القط المخادع والفئران.

St-Takla.org Divider

The master of the kingdom of darkness often holds the image of an angel of light.

I will never trust a devil even if he appeared all-luminous.

His deception is fatal.

Let me my Savior to find my shelter in You.

You alone protect me from his violence and deceptions.
