A cat has become a museum.

After seven years, the Emperor?s patience came to an end and he sent for the painter. What of the cat" Seven years have gone by. You have promised and promised but I still haven?t seen one!

The Emperor was ecstatic, overwhelmed with such beauty. He did not neglect (which is no longer the case nowadays) to ask the artist how much he would charge for such beautiful drawing. The painter asked for a sum which surprised the Emperor. So much money for a drawing that you did in two seconds, in front of me" said the Emperor.
