When the hen asks a cat, dog, and mouse for help planting some wheat, she gets no takers: "and#8216;Not I!and#8217; said the cat. and#8216;Not I!and#8217; said the dog. and#8216;Not I!and#8217; said the mouse." They wonand#8217;t water, cut, or grind the wheat . . . or help bake a cake with it, either. So guess who eats the cake by herself in the end?
