Jesus belled the cat.

There’s a cute little children’s story about a very brave mouse who saves his family by figuring out a way to get a bell hung around the house cat’s neck. The jingle warns them of the cat’s approach and he can never sneak up on them again.

Ethan and I were talking about the meaning of the saying “to bell the cat,” and I explained that it meant that someone did something dangerous for the good of everyone else. To which he said simply: “Jesus belled the cat.”

Yes. Yes he did.
