God's Present To The Cat

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.

And all these were things the animals begged of God.

At last he came to the end of the line, and 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 home.

But he took away her false modesty.
