The King Names His Cat

A King was given a great BIG cat.

He did not know what to call it.

He looked out of the window and saw the blue sky.

"I know. I will call the cat 'Sky', because the sky is the greatest thing there ever was."

"Oh no", said the Queen. "Clouds can cover the sky. You should call the cat, 'Clouds'."

"Oh no" Said the Royal adviser. "The wind can blow away the clouds. You should call the cat 'Wind'."

"Oh no" Said the jester. "A wall can stop the wind. You should call the cat 'Wall'."

"Oh no" Said the servant maid. "A mouse could nibble through a wall. You should call the cat 'Mouse'."

Then, the King's only little daughter said, " Oh no, a cat can easily catch a mouse. You should call the cat, 'CAT.'

And because a cat can catch a mouse, and a mouse can nibble through a wall, and a wall can stop the wind and the wind can blow away the clouds, and the clouds can cover the sky and the sky IS the greatest thing that ever was.

That cat was called CAT.
