One day, God told all the animals that there would be a feast the next day, and those that came would be granted the gift of becoming one of the zodiac. The cat was sick, so he had missed the announcment. He asked his friend, the rat, what God had said. The sly Rat told the cat that the feast was the day after next. That night, the Rat, the Ox, the Dog, the Bird, the Boar, the Snake, the Bunny, the Tiger, the Monkey, the Ram (sheep), the Horse, and the Dragon walked to the feast and each became a member of the zodiac. The poor cat was sleeping happily, awaiting for the next day for the feast that would never come. He was never treated right and was not allowed to join the zodiac feast that occured every new year. Finally, one day he was accepted. He was, for the first time, allowed to join the feast. He was more happy than he had ever been in his whole life. Then the cat died. All the animals mourned the cats death, and realized that one day, they would all die, too. Then god came up with a soulution. Each member of the zodiac would be reborn into another person (even the cat). The poor cat still couldnt become part of the zodiac, though. At least he was allowed to join the feasts. They say that people still go around with the zodiac spirits in them. The End! I hope you all enjoyed!
