There was once a man who had a beautiful cat. The cat was so loving that one day the man wished out loud, "My dear cat, if you were a woman, I'd marry you!"
Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, heard his wish and changed the cat into a beautiful woman. The man and the catwoman got married and lived happily together until one night.
The catwoman was sitting on her bed when a mouse came into the room. She jumped off the bed, grabbed the mouse, and began to eat it. Her husband was not pleased. "What are you doing?" he cried. "That is disgusting!"
Aphrodite, the goddess, looked down from the clouds. Seeing the woman gulping down the mouse, she turned the woman back into a cat. Aphrodite laughed and thought, "I can change how a creature looks on the outside, but to make a real difference, I need to change its inner character first."
