Everybody loves kitty cats, right? Of course we do! Well, if you’re even remotely familiar with ancient history, you know ancient Egypt took it a whole lot further. You see, the cat – being the sacred animal of the goddess Bastet – was held in the highest regard. Killing a cat in ancient Egypt, even accidentally, was a capital crime.
Ironically, this may have been a primary cause of Egypt’s downfall during classical antiquity.
“Wait, what? Oh, this should be good.”
