Egyptian's royal households revered we black cats. We were adorned in jewels & allowed to eat off their plates. We were the symbol of Bastet, the black cat-headed Goddess of Protection. They believed that she would become part of their cat & would grace their home with riches, prosperity and fertility. In Egypt, the death of a cat was mourned like a family member & was mummified.
