The Rabbit is fourth in the order of all the Chinese zodiac animals. According to one folktale, the Jade Emperor decided that the order of the animals would be determined according to the order by which they arrived at his party. The Rabbit left for the party at daybreak. As he got closer to the door, he realized that no other animal had arrived before him.
The Rabbit was confident that he would still finish first even if he relaxed for a bit. He took a nap and as soon as he woke up, there had been three other animals that arrived at the party.
Rabbits take everything they do seriously; they want to be treated the same way they treat others
