A short tale story about how a cat , a dog and a mice started their epic battle of household supremacy.

"..laid back life"

There was once an Indonesian Cat (short hair and crooked tail) who was watchful to the point, that a guard dog always on the look to challenged by demonstrating the tip of his fangs to show off fear and the predator stuff in him. That Cat appeared to be all over the place on the double with his paws all prepared for a jump calculating his chance on the pestering Dog. Finally a scheming Mice conniving with the Dog kept so nearly to their nooks, that the Cat saw he would need to utilize his wits well to get the one that annoying his laid back life. So one day he ascended on a rack and dangled from it(Indonesian Cat has a crooked tail remember?), head descending, as though he were dead, holding himself up by sticking to a few ropes with one paw.

" think am dead."

At the point when the Mice peeped out and saw him in that position, they thought he had been hung up there in discipline for some offense. Meekly from the start they stood out their heads and sniffed about precisely. Be that as it may as nothing mixed, the mice report it to the Dog and celebrate and all trooped cheerfully out to praise the passing of the lowly tom Cat.

Simply then the Cat let go his hold, and before the Mice recouped from their astonishment, he had made an end of three or four. On a drop jaw the dog was also shocked on how it got on his nose literally!

The cat grin and tell the guard dog, "never underestimate my mortal life, even when you think am dead" Now the Dog kept more strictly at home than ever and since then the dog always chase the Cat once he runs, but never if the cat is asleep or doing nothing while the mouse is in hiding fearing the revenge will be more fatal than what Cat might end up into with the dog.

And they lived chaotically ever after!

LOL, sounds like a good parable for how to get along with a possibly dangerous adversary - and not bothering them when they are being quiet.
