"C" is for cats (1)

The ancient Egyptians adored cats, worshipped them as gods.

In fact, the cat-god was called, "Bastet", and this image can be found in the form of statues, jewelry, stone-carvings and paintings throughout Egypt 4 to 5 thousand years ago.

Cats were thought to have magic powers associated with the spiritual world.

Of course, even for us, now, cat's eyes seem to be beautiful, jewel-like, mysterious orbs, capable of casting spells.                                            (V.C)
