There were four cotton merchants in a small town. They maintained a warehouse to keep their stocks. Over the time, rat menace increased, and they decided to find a solution for it. After trying rat traps, they found it bringing a cat would solve the problem. So they bought a cat and did all caring for it. The cat did eat a lot of rats, and rat menace was under control. Merchants cared a lot for the cat, and often they quarreled with each other for even things putting ornaments on her. Later, they found a solution that, since they were four, all can treat each leg of the cat as their belonging and can decorate their leg with whatever ornaments one wants. So, the cat was having four different ornaments in four legs.
