The rat arrived first at the meeting with the Jade Emperor with the use of a little bit of trickery. As he came across a raging river, the rat hitched a ride with the ox only to jump off just at the finish line to arrive first for the meeting. This is why the rat is the first in the 12-year cycle of the Zodiac.
