A cat that lived in a monastery made such noise that it distracted spiritual teacher and his disciples when they began their evening meditation. So the teacher ordered that the cat be tied up during the evening practice.

Centuries later, learned descendants of the spiritual teacher wrote scholarly treatises about the religious significance of tying up a cat for meditation practice. -A Zen Stories To Tell Your Neighbours
