The Greatest in the World

The Creation of Cat - Author Unknown

In the morning of the world, God called all the
animals together to divide among them the attributes
they would need in life. The beasts crowded around
Him, clamoring their wants-speed, strength,
intelligence, beauty, courage-and only the cat
remained apart, silent. She asked for nothing, but sat
and watched, and when she saw the scorpion raise his
tail and go to sting the foot of God, the cat pounced,
seizing him in her paws and knocking him senseless.
God saw this, and gave freely to the cat everything
the others were demanding. That is why the scorpion
lives his life in the dust, and why the cat smiles in
her sleep.

When God made the world, He chose to put animals in
it, and decided to give each whatever it wanted. All
the animals formed a long line before His throne, and
the cat quietly went to the end of the line.

To the elephant and the bear He gave strength, to the
rabbit and the deer, swiftness; to the owl, the
ability to see at night, to the birds and the
butterflies; great beauty; to the fox, cunning; to the
monkey, intelligence; to the dog, loyalty; to the
lion, courage; to the otter, playfulness. All these
were things the animals begged of God.

At last He came to the end of the line. There sat the
little cat, waiting patiently.

"What will you have?" God asked the cat.

The cat shrugged modestly. "Oh, whatever scraps you
have left over. I don't mind."

"But I'm God. I have everything left over.

"Then I'll have a little of everything, please.

And God gave a great shout of laughter at the
cleverness of this small animal, and gave the cat
everything she asked for, adding grace and elegance
and, only for her, a gentle purr that would always
attract humans and assure her a warm and comfortable

But he took away her false modesty.
