Cats in Ancient Egypt – not what you think it was like — 2 Comments

  1. Very, very interesting, interesting. I do hope that they didn’t actually suspend the cats by the tail and simply took a piece of rope or something to measure and do it that way. It does all have a ring of truth to it and is more than I’d learned up to now about the cats’ history then. I do still wonder how they interacted with them, like if they saw that they had feelings and treated them as pets. I’d also read that punishment for killing a cat in Egypt was a death penalty offense, but this articles’ account seems more plausible.
