Everyone has heard of the story about the tortoise and the hare. Those two animals engaged in a race with the hare taking a huge lead and then taking a nap while the tortoise trudged relentlessly towards the finish line.
That same fable may have played out recently when a cat wandered into a garden guarded buy a tortoise. The cat ignored the tortoise at first and even walked away. That’s when the tortoise crept up on the cat and bit its tail.
Not surprisingly, the cat ran away but not before the tortoise proved once and for all that persistence really pays off after all.
