In the beginning of time, the first animal, a cat walked the earth. He had nine lives for the nine rocks of the heavens. As he was a rather large cat he needed large, sturdy things to play with so he created more rocks to chase. He would fling them up into the sky and watch them burst to ashes in the atmosphere, but after a while the first cat became bored with the sky rock that he was living on because there was nobody else. He sent out a message through the skies and a creature called a human responded. The human was nice to the first cat, but as time went by, the human grew old and died. Again the first cat was alone so this time he sent out a message for two companions because the first human was so nice. When they arrived on first cat's sky rock, the humans were nice to him, but terrible to each other. They fought over everything, and eventually they had children and more children. The humans grew in numbers while first cat stayed the only one of his kind. He saw how happy the human's were together and decided to make another cat. He named her Two because she was the second cat, and after a while they had children as well.
The cats and humans multiplied in numbers, the humans a little faster because they had a head start, but one day, there came to be too many cats and humans. Somebody had to go. The cats said that the humans must because cats were on the sky rock first but humans disagreed. Cats being the large, semi-immortal creatures that they were had a larger population because although in the history of the world there were more humans, the humans died off so they never really grew to big of a population. The cats said the humans had to go and the humans the cats, but nobody could come to an agreement. Finally the first cat decided that he would take away the nine lives of all the other cats so that they only had one, that way the cats would die off faster like the humans did and take down the population. The other cats did not like this idea and they rebelled against the humans and first cat. In the battle, many humans died and first cat died eight times, because he did not take away his own set of nine lives, but the humans won and they punished the cats by shrinking them. The shrunk them so that they could never be able to rebel again, and first cat agreed to be shrunk too because he created the cats.
After all of the cats were shrunk and their nine lives replaced with one, they lost their near immortality and as many humans died in the battle, the population control was no longer a problem. With the loss of his near immortality, first cat grew old and feeble. He still enjoyed playing with rocks but he could no longer fling them up into the heavens so he simply rolled them across the ground. First cat's grand children saw the ageing of first cat and decided to move him to a place where it was warm and the rocks would roll the best. They moved him to a desert. First cat died in that desert a few years after his grand children moved him there but he had so much fun rolling rocks that to this day his great spirit wind paws are said to roll stones across the desert. Named sailing stones after his immortalized wind paws, these stones are the only evidence left of first cat.
