One of the most popular of “Aesop’s Fables” is about a fox and a cat. In this tale, a cat and fox discuss their tricks for avoiding capture. The cat only has one, while the fox has several. When hunters arrive on the scene, the cat quickly escapes up a tree while the fox is caught because he takes too long thinking about the different courses of action he can take.
