There once was a dog and a cat, who had both been gifted by the gods. The cat had been given the power to morph into any shape or color and also had been given exceptional strength. The dog had also been bestowed with great strength as well. But unlike the cat, he was the gift of black magic, demon magic or witchcraft as referred by others.
You see, the dog and the cat were not enemies, but not allies either. It was a stormy night and the cat had appeared on the dogs doorstep, asking for shelter from the rain. The dog had a feeling within him that compelled him to turn the cat away, but his honor and self worth would not allow him to do so.
I am in your upmost debt the cat bowed graciously, I thank you from the depths of my soul for sharing this hospitality of spending a night in a palace as gorgeous as yours.
