She went to Aphrodite, the goddess of love, & requested her to transform her in to a woman as she might meet the young man & make him lover her. Aphrodite, feeling sorry for cat & her plight, agreed & changed her in to a beautiful woman. The young man fell in love with her (Cat converted) & their love converted in to wedding soon.

     The first night, while they were alone in their bedroom, Aphrodite, who could not resist her own curiosity as to whether the cat’s instincts had changed along with her appearance, let loose a mouse in to the room. The young woman, totally forgetting, where & who she was instantly leapt of the bed & chased the mouse in order to eat it.

   Aphrodite was disappointed with young woman’s behavior & changed her back to a cat.
