“In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.” (Terry Pratchett)
Cats play an important role in religion, myths and legends around the world. The Ancient Egyptians worshipped a Cat Goddess Bastet, who had a powerful role in religion. Folk tales often refer to the different powers of the cat. Cat lovers nowadays unite to celebrate the beloved felines, who are forever in our minds and hearts.
