Before he left, he asked his host to visit him the next weekend. The countryside mouse promised to pay his friend a visit at his earliest convenience.

While the two mice were enjoying a finger-licking meal, something unexpected happened. The barking of dogs rent the air. The countryside mouse was alarmed. He knew what such sounds meant. He would have scampered for safety had his host not assured him that his safety was guaranteed. Suddenly, the door of the banquet hail flung open. A party of dancers, together with four huge dogs entered the room. The two mice were frightened beyond measure. They jumped off the dining table and hid themselves in a far corner of the room.
When the things calmed down and the dancers went away with their huge dogs, the two friends came out of the hiding, still trembling with great fear. The country mouse bidding 'good-bye' to his friend said, if this is the fine way of living in the city, l would best prefer to have only my simple barley bread in the countryside. While there my safety is guaranteed i don't want to
