A Brief History Of Cats
There is a strong connection between cats and humans for thousands of years. Explorers found the oldest remains of wild cat buried with a human in Cyprus. Those remains were around 9,500 years old.
Cats were also appreciated and even worshiped in Ancient Egypt. They also had a goddess, Bastet, which had a head of a cat. She was a goddess of war and protection.
Chinese farmers also worshiped a cat god- Li-Shou who protected their crops from rats and mice. In Poland people also had cat god, Ovinnik, who chased the evil spirits. The Peruvian cat god was known as Ai-apaec and the Welsh goddess was Ceridwen and she was accompanied by white cats to help her in the human world.
