Even though this cat appears the victor.. is he really? Perhaps his cautiousness and lack of confidence led him to over compensate in order to look good in front of others (since in his heart, he is jealous of those with greater abilities). He used three swords against the two swords his competitors wielded. The result is that he was able to beat out what he decided were competitors, but at what price? He may have won this battle, but he seems a fairly lonely and unsatisfied winner. Was the pain he inflicted on others to assert himself worth it? Could he have missed an opportunity to forge friendships and alliances, instead of alienating others?

This could also represent a battle of words: Arguing for the sake of winning and showing dominance over others. The quick witted cat may win out, but at the end of the day he will be curling up in bed cold and alone if he doesn't learn to tap into the compassionate and emotional side of life, symbolized by the water right behind him.
