name. As time progressed, the emperor realized
that the cat should have a name thus he decided to
find a suitable name for his pet. He called his
ministers, the seven wisest men in his empire, and
commanded them to find a suitable name within
seven days. The ministers were warned that if they
do not succeed in finding a name by the end of 7
days, they will be punished. Also, the minister
whose suggestion will be accepted will receive
hundred gold pieces.
The ministers did a lot of research on names that
would suit the emperor's favourite pet. At the end
of this period they were summoned to the palace
again, and asked for their suggestions. The
youngest of the group thought he had found the
perfect name. 'TIGER!" he announced proudly,
"Your majesty, as we all know tigers are powerful
animals, it will be the best name for your pet cat.
"Good name," said the emperor, after a
moment's reflection. 'The tiger is not only a noble
and powerful beast but it is also known as the cat's
cousin," added the emperor.
"Noble, perhaps," said the second minister, "but it
is not as powerful as the dragon. Can a tiger soar
into the sky ? No, but a dragon can ! I think

cat". As the emperor was contemplating the name
DRAGON, the third minister said, "Clouds can go
higher than dragons. A cloud is more powerful than
a dragon. Let's call it CLOUD." "Let's not be hasty,"
advised the fourth wise man. "Clouds may fly high
but they are pushed around by winds. Winds are
more powerful than clouds. WIND would be the
most appropriate name for a great emperor's pet."
The emperor was still not satisfled with the
suggestions "WIND ?" said the emperor, doubtfully.
"Isn't there anything belter ?" The fifth wise man
took this opportunity to give his suggestion.

minister. "A brick wall is more powerful than the wind!" Oh, 1 see, "said the emperor. "Well, BRICK WALL is not a bad name. But isn't it a bit long ?" "I have a shorter name," said the sixth minister "RAT" Everyone started laughing at the suggestion. "So you suggest that I must call my cat RAT ?" The sixth minister replied, "yes, Your Majesty, RAT! A rat can eat through a brick wall, which makes it more powerful than the wall, more powerful than the wind, more powerful than all the suggestions given to you." "I get your point," interrupted the emperor, "but can you call a cat, RAT?" "Indeed you can't!" piped up the seventh wise man who was the eldest among all seven. "A Cat is a cat. How can one call a cat RAT ? Also if a rat is more powerful than the others the cat is even more so because it is mightier than the rat. The emperor was impressed with the seventh minister's suggestion and decided to accept it. So the royal pet remained nameless in a way because from then on it was simply called CAT. But the minister who suggested this name was rewarded as promised.
