Mouse Trap Story

The Story of A Mouse And A Deadly Trap: This is the story of a mouse who asked every other animal in the house for help to save it from a deadly trap brought up by the family living in that home but none of them helped that petty creature. This story tells us in an interesting way why should you never laugh at the troubles of other people.

A mouse looked through the crack in the wall to see the farmer and his wife open a package what food might this contain? The mouse wondered to discover it was a mouse trap. Retreating to the farmyard, the mouse proclaimed the warning. “There is a mouse trap in the house!”

The chicken clucked and scratched, raised her head, and said “Mr. Mouse, I can tell this is a grave concern to you, but it is of no consequence to me. I cannot be bothered by it.”

Then the mouse turned to the pig and told him “There is a mouse trap in the house.” There is a mousetrap in the house.’ The pig sympathized but said “I am so very sorry, Mr. Mouse, but there is nothing I can do about it but pray. But assured you are in my prayers.”

Then mouse turned to the cow and said “There is a mouse trap in the house” The cow said, “wow, Mr. Mouse I’m sorry for you, but it’s no skin off my nose.”

What Happened When Other Animals Turned Down Mouse’s Request

So, the mouse returned to the house, head down and dejected, to face the far mousetrap alone. That very night a sound was heard throughout the house like the sound of a mouse trap catching its prey. The farmer’s wife rushed to see what was caught. In the darkness, she did not see it was a venomous snake that the trap had caught.

The snake bit the farmer’s wife. The farmer rushed to the hospital and she returned home with a fever. “Everyone knows you treat a fever with fresh chicken soup, some said to the farmer. So the farmer took his hatchet to the farmyard for the soup’s main ingredient i.e., The cock.

But his wife’s sickness contained, so friends and neighbors came to sit with her around the clock. To feed them, the farmer butchered the pig. The farmer’s wife did not get well; she died and so many people came for her funeral. The farmer had the cow and slaughtered the cow to provide enough meat for all of them. The mouse looked upon it all from his crack-in wall with great sweetness.

Moral of The Story: So the next time you hear someone is facing a problem and think it doesn’t concern you, remember, when one of us is threatened, we are all at risk. We are all in this journey called life. We must keep an eye out for one another and make an extra effort to encourage one another. Each of us is a vital thread in another person’s Tapestry.

“The more help we give, the more we get.”
