Why Dogs Hate Cats

Tales Of The Cloud Dancer. As told by: Harley

Harley


A long, long time ago there was an old man who lived in a house surrounded by a high fence. He never went out even to buy food. He had no family but he lived with a dog and cat. People in the village could not remember who he was. He had always been there as long as any could remember.


One day a local thief climbed up on a neighbor’s roof. He wanted to see over the fence. He saw a beautiful garden and ponds. The house was so beautiful that an emperor might have lived there.  He jumped over the fence and sneaked into the house. He hid behind the door in the main room and waited.  Soon a very old man came into the room with a large dog and a cat close behind. The old man sat at the table and asked the dog what he wanted to eat. The dog barked and the old man answered him that that is what he thought he would say. He then took a jade wand from his sleeve waved it in the air and pointed at the table.  A very large bowl of beef stew appeared.


The old man asked the cat the same question, the cat meowed and the wand was again used. This time a large plate with a cooked trout appeared. Then the old man waved the wand and a plate of food appeared for him.  When the three were done eating the wand was again used and the dirty dishes disappeared. The three then left the room and headed to bed.


The dog ran ahead hoping to sleep at the head of the bed, but the cat was faster and the dog curled up at the foot of the bed. The three of them were soon asleep. The thief crept out and stole the magic wand, which had been left on the table.  And so it was when the old man, dog and cat woke the next morning the wand was gone. The old man put his head in his hands and wept. "I am too old to chase through the village to find the thief. We are doomed". He began to weep harder. The dog and cat both licked his hands and tried to comfort him.  He stopped crying and looked at them.


He said to the dog,"Will you be my strong legs and go find him?" Then he turned to the cat and asked, "Will you be my clever mind and get my wand back?" They both answered him and started on their way.


They wandered through the village searching for the thief. The dog learned to sniff around for food people had thrown out. Sometimes he had to fight other beggars for it.  But he always shared everything with the cat. The cat learned to jump through peoples’ windows and help itself to any food it found.  It would eat most of the food and if it was full would bring the dog what was left.


They followed the thief's trail through village after village until they came to a very wide river. They could find no bridge or boat to cross the river. The cat talked the dog into letting it climb up on his back and the dog started swimming across. The river was very strong and cold and the dog was starting to struggle and tiring fast.  When he thought he couldn't go on the cat told him to think about home, their master and warm food. The dog swam on and finally made it across.  When the dog was on the shore the cat jumped off and ran ahead. The dog could barely walk but he trudged on.


They finally found the thief in a very large house, with lots of expensive possessions. They hid in the garden until night. They sneaked in the house and found the thief asleep.  He had the wand around his neck and he had two guards watching over him. The dog attacked the guards and the cat jumped for the wand. The guards were beating the dog as the cat landed on the thief. The thief woke up and grabbed for the wand.  The cat bit him and put its paws on the wand and wished itself home. The old man was so happy to see the cat and the wand.


A month later there was a knock on the gate. When the old man and cat opened the gate, there was the dog.  He was so thin and covered in sores from being beaten and worn out from his journey. The old man swore at the dog, yelled at him and slammed the gate closed in the dog’s face. The cat had the old man believing that the dog had run off and not helped at all in getting the wand back.


The cat lived happily with the old man in the house. The dog eventually made its way to the country and a poor family took it in.  The dog never forgot how wrongly the cat had treated him. This story has been passed down from generation to generation of puppies.


This, my friends, is why I hate cats!
