(A cat walks in the forest. He sees a fox sleeping under a tree)
Cat: Good day, Mrs. Fox. How are you on this beautiful and sunny day?
(The fox opens her eyes)
Fox: Mmmm…. can’t you see that I’m sleeping?
Cat: Oh, I’m sorry… but as soon as I saw you I thought to myself… Oh, she’s so intelligent and so clever… everybody loves her!
(The fox stands up and looks at the cat from bottom to top)
Fox: Ha, ha, ha, ha… I didn’t know you had a brain. Go away… hunt mice… that’s the only thing you can do.
Cat: Oh, no, I can do a lot more things than that. But you haven’t answer my question.
Fox: Why should I? In fact… I shouldn’t be talking to you! You’re nobody! You know nothing! You’re useless! You don’t even have a life! Ha, ha, ha, ha.
Cat: You’re wrong. I have a talent.
Fox: A talent? Ha, ha, ha, ha…. Yeah, sure… tell me more about it.
Cat: Well, when I see a bunch of dogs, I can climb up the trees and save my life.
Fox: Is that all?
Cat: Yes… what about you?
Fox: Well, I have a bag of tricks, and I really feel sorry for you. Come with me, I’ll show you how to get rid of the dogs.
(They hear some dogs barking)
Cat: Wait a minute…did you hear that?
Fox: Don’t tell me you’re afraid of those barking dogs?
(The cat climbs a tree)
Cat: Sure I am!
Fox: Ha, ha, ha, ha. Now I can see your talent in action!
Cat: Come on, Mrs. Fox, What are you going to do…open up your bag of tricks! Hurry up… they are almost here!
(Some dogs approach. They grab and take the fox away)
Fox: No! No! Cat… do something!
Cat: Sorry… I can only hunt mice! Remember?
(The dogs and the fox leave)
Cat: Oh, Mrs. Fox, your bag of tricks was empty!
