Once there lived two cats in a house. One day the cats stole a piece of cake. They had a quarrel over the sharing of the piece of cake. Each of them wanted the larger part. They went to a monkey. They wanted the monkey to divide the piece of cake. The monkey assured equal dividing. He broke the cake into two pieces. He told the cats that one piece seemed larger than the other. So, he bit the larger portion. Then he again broke the cake into two pieces. The same thing repeated. The monkey bit the larger piece once again. It continued until the cats told the monkey to stop it. The cats wanted the rest of the cake. But the monkey told them that he would take it as his fee. Thus, he ate up the entire cake. The cats realized their fault. They left the place with a heavy heart.
The Cats and the Monkey
One day two cats stole a piece of cake from the kitchen of a householder. They had a dispute over their shares. As a result, they did not come to a decision on how they would divide the cake among themselves. They exchanged a lot of hot words. But all went in vain. Then they were about to fight with each other. At that time a monkey appeared there. He heard the whole thing and told the cats to give the cake to him. He gave them assurance that he would divide it equally among them. The foolish cats could know nothing about his trick. So, they agreed with the monkey and gave the cake to him. The monkey broke the cake into two pieces. But one piece grew a bit larger than the other. At once he bit off a portion from the large piece and it now became a bit smaller than the other piece. He again bit off a portion from the second piece in order to make the two pieces equal. But the second piece grew smaller again. Thus, the monkey tactfully ate the whole cake. The cats could understand their foolishness and be very sorry for losing their cake.
