You all might be wondering why a print named Year of the Pig features mostly cats! This is Kozy's charming way of telling us the story of why the cat is NOT in the Chinese astrology. Kozy's own description explains the lore:
"...The Cat and the Rat were the best of friends and the smartest of all the animals. When the Jade Emperor announced the race amongst all the animals to cross the river to decide which 12 animals would be in the Chinese Zodiac, the Rat tricked the strong Ox into helping him across the river, only to leap forward at the last moment to claim first place. Even more deviously though, the Rat told his best friend the Cat the WRONG DAY for the race! The Cat showed up to find the race had already been run! The Cat would certainly have been in the Zodiac instead of the Pig (who came in last place as he got hungry during the race and stopped for a big snack and then got sleepy and took a nap). Supposedly this is why cats chase rats to this very day (and how I justify painting 138 cats to celebrate the Year of the Pig - looking closely though and you will also find the pig and the devious rat!)."
