On the very edge of the table the Cat has trapped a mouse; however he sees two other mice outside under the bushes and he wonders if he should let this one go and try to get the two outside.  This cat is very greedy and the mouse knows that he will soon be free.
Is a mouse in the paw worth two in the bushes?  That seems to depend on if you are the cat or the mouse.
