Hi PrinceWhite4,

i remember that there was a cat where did it go???

Hi PrincessDaisySkittle,

I think that the rat pushed the cat into the water because he wanted to be the first animal to cross the river. 

The cat floated away down the river and didn't get to the other side. So the Jade Emperor didn't choose the cat for the Chinese zodiac.

What do you think? Do you like the story?

Hi MissRubyEnvironment,

2008 was the year of the rat.

The rat is the first animal of the Chinese zodiac!

Hi GoldSunspotFish,

If you were born in 2005, you are a rooster.

Next year, 2017 is the year of the rooster too!
