It was October and a tribe of nomas in a remote part of America asked their new chief if the coming winter was going to be extremely cold or mild. Since he was a chief in a modern society he had never been taught the old secrets, When he looked at the sky he couldn't tell what the winter was going to be like.

Nevertheless, to be on the safe side he told his tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the village should collect firewood to be prepared- But being a practical leader, after several days he got an idea. He went to the phone booth, called the United Staes National Weather Service and asked, vi h the coming winter going to be cold?"
"It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold," the meteorologist at the weather service responded.
So the chief went back to his people and told them to collect even more firewood in order to be prepared, A week later he called the Weather Service again. "Does it still look like it is going to be a very cold winter?"
"Yes," the man at Weather Service again replied, "it's going to be a very cold winter."

The chief again went back to his people and ordered them to collect every scrap of firewood they could find. Two weeks later the chief called the Weather Service again.

"Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?"
"Absolutely," the man replied. "It's looking more and more like it is going to be one of the coldest winters even"
"How canyon be so surer' the Chief asked.
The weatherman replied, "The nomas are collecting firewood like.occasion to invite a stranger cat, a friend of hers, saying, "My master is giving a feast, and there is always enough food for all; come and sup with me tonight." The cat thus invited, went at the hour appointed, and seeing the preparations for so grand an entertainment, said in the joy of her heart, "How glad I am that I came J I do not often get such a chance as this. I will take care and eat enough to last me both today and tomorrow."

While she was congratulating herself and conveying her pleasure to her friend, the cook saw her moving ahout among his dishes and, seizing her by her fore and hind paws, bundled her without ceremony out of the window. She fell with force upon the ground and limped away, howling dreadfully. Her yelling soon attracted other street cats which came up to her and inquired how she had enjoyed her supper,

She replied, "Why, to tell you the truth, I ate so much that I am full and cannot remember what I ate."
