A hungry mouse came across a basket full of corn. He cut a small hole through it and crawled inside. He ate a lot of corn.

Having satisfied his hunger, he tried to exit through the same hole, but due to increased belly, it couldn’t get out. He thought he should wait for the belly to shrink and slept in the basket.

The next morning, his belly had shrunk. Before leaving, he wanted to eat some more corn. Like earlier, he couldn’t control and ate a lot again. He tried to exit, but couldn’t leave this time too.

He waited there for the belly to shrink, but by that time a hungry cat was passing by. She smelled the rat, opened the basket lid, and ate the mouse.
