The year of the cat

Yesterday was the beginning of the Lunar New Year of the Cat or Rabbit. The Vietnamese welcomed the Year of the Cat and the Chinese rang in the Year of the Rabbit. According to legend, the cat was left out of the Chinese zodiac because the rat tricked the cat into missing Buddha’s call for the animals to come and have a year assigned in their honor!
The cat is the fourth animal symbol of the 12-year cycle of the Vietnamese zodiac. Cats are smooth talkers, talented and ambitious, often succeeding in their studies. The Year of the Cat is said to be a stress-free year :)
