Did you know that I am “Royalty?” 👑🐱👑
Just like any other ancient civilization, Egypt also had it's favorite animals. It was cats who were domesticated in ancient Egypt. The Egyptians worshiped many animal species, but cats were on the top. Even though dogs were valued for the ability to be loyal and protective, cats were thought to be a kind of demi-gods. 🐈💎
I thought I’d share some fun facts on why cats were royal animals in Ancient Egypt 🇪🇬:
👑 Cats Were Beloved and Helpful Pets: People in ancient Egypt adored cats, but not only for their royal nature. They were also a very helpful human companion. Cats were taken along hunting excursions, where they would be trained to retrieve fish and fowl. When staying in town, cats would also protect people from venomous animals such as snakes. They also killed mice and rats. By protecting them, they earned their place in the human’s family life.
👑 Cats Could Be Seen on Many Objects in Entire Ancient Egypt: As the popularity of cats was increasing, they began to appear on more objects with each passing day. Egyptians made statues and jewelry in honor to cats.
👑 Cats Were Mummified: Being revered by people, some cats underwent the process of mummification after death just like humans. The cat would be buried with provisions like milk and mice. The reasons for their mummification were different, but mostly it was for religious reasons. Humans wanted to return the favor to cats in the form of a royal offering.
Do you think the royalty roots have gone to your cats head? What type of traits does your cat portray that shows you they are royalty? 💰💰💰

Solstice was quite a fierce Tom before the grandchildren gentled him and he retired. He still dreams of being a wild fierce street fighter but he knows he's just old, so he emotionally eats.
