Who worshiped cats?
Well, it is believed that the ancient Egyptians worshiped cats. How else can it be if cats are mummified-that too, estimated three hundred thousand cats were mummified?
Such an astonishing discovery was made in 1888, by an Egyptian peasant! It is reported that some them were used as fertilizer in England.
I have read in books that the Egyptians called the cat God as Bast that was depicted with the head of a lion. The period was 3100 B.C.
Family members were believed to mourn the death of their pet cat by shaving off their eyebrows. Also, if someone kills cat for any reason, he faced a death sentence.
