I love how the video ends with the cat staring into the camera with utter resentment. If you guys didn't know, this video is based off of a Chinese legend on how the 12 zodiac animals were selected. The cat was left out and continues to stay bitter till this day.


Fun fact, in Vietnamese version of zodiac, the rabit was replaced by the cat.


The version I read as a kid says the cat and the mouse used to be best friends, and agreed to hop on the ox’s back so they can win the race. However, the mouse betrayed the cat by pushing it off of the ox’s back while crossing the river, and the cat almost drowned. The mouse then hopped from the ox’s back winning first place in the zodiac list, and the cat vowed to forever hunt down the mouse for the betrayal.

Is the cat Jesus? Because I have been had before. But I know the truth; simultaneously. It's called "meanness".

To those who are still pondering the meaning behind this animation, here's what I've come up with:  This video is meant to represent the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac. According to the ancient story, these animals were selected to be part of the zodiac in the order that they finished a race.  The cat was originally a contender in this race to become a zodiac, but it failed to cross the river to the finish. This is why, if you look closely, you can see the shape of a cat throughout the duration of the animation, and also this is why the very last scene shows a cat waiting at the edge of a river--it was the one animal that lost the race and did not become a zodiac.
