Abstract: In this story, two groups of cats, the blonde cats and the black cats, live on different sides of the river. They agree that a black cat will lead all the cats half the year, and a blond cat the other half of the year, but fights still break out between the two groups. Suddenly a gray cat is born, he is wise, and all the cats like him. They decide to make him the leader all year long. The situation is calm for a while and then fights break out. The gray cat orders all cats to take off their ears and give them to him. When the cats are given back their ears, the black cats are given the blond cats' ears, and visa versa. Suddenly each group hears voices they never heard before, the voices of the other group. They needed to exchange ears to be able to hear each other.
