So Cat thanked the Rat and went happily home.

And so as New Year’s Day approached, slow Ox left before all the other animals woke up.

However Rat spied the Ox leave and quietly jumped on the Ox’s back.

Unaware of Rat, Ox arrived at God’s house and stopped at the closed gate and thought that one have yet to arrive and therefore was the First.
