There are lots of story i think. But as far as i know, rat is the first in the lunar calender, so can be considered as leader. HeHe..

WP is correct, it was the kind cow who allow the rat sat on it's head. Thus the rat jumped off and reached the place 1st.

Watched on TV! :P

The cat should be the first one, the mouse is never on the list but mouse heard what the cat said to the cow then mouse becomes the first to arrive early.

Anyway it is just a story among many other versions, Happy Chinese New Year!
