Mystical Qualities: The Cat In Ancient Egyptian Culture

There is a great deal known about the place of the cat in Ancient Egyptian culture due to the fact of the abundance of evidence that was left behind. During this period in time, cats came to have mystical qualities, perhaps in association to their acute night vision. They also came to be highly valued household possessions. The entire household would go into mourning when their family cat died and the head of the household would shave off his eyebrows as a mark of grief. The cat was also the first thing to be saved if an Egyptian house caught fire. The temple and royal cats were even farther up the social scale. They were pampered in life and honored in death by mummified burial.
