Needless to say all the mice (and rats) had a meeting last night. Our plan was to wait until we found the big black cat asleep. Then one of us would creep up to him and tie a bell around his neck. In that way we would hear him come. Granddad asked for volunteers but as you know we are all so small. Nobody wanted to bell the cat. We were all too scared.

Then I had a brain wave. I said I had a friend, a special friend, who might be able to help us. Now we are asking you. Do you think you could tie a bell around the cat’s neck? I know it is not your cat but I have seen you playing with the children living with the cat. Perhaps you can persuade them.

I am sending this letter by express post. Please write soon (unless you’d rather phone: Cell no. 083 555 0000).
