How the order of the animals came about
However on the morning of selection the rat was so excited he forgot all about his promise and headed off alone.
On the way he found that most of the other animals travelling were faster than him, so he made a compromise with an ox:
The Jade Emperor (Chinese folklore) said that 12 animals would be selected to represent one year in turn and that the first 12 animals at the place of selection would be chosen.

The rat promised the cat that he would awaken him on the day of selection so that they could arrive together.
the ox would carry the rat and the rat would sing for the ox.
At last, the ox and rat arrived before all the other animals. But the rat had slipped off just before and arrived first overall.
The order that the rest of the animals arrived in determined the order on the Zodiac.
