Cat in Ancient Egypt:

Most modern domestic cats are descendants of the cats of ancient Egypt. These beautiful and engaging creatures represent, therefore, a living link between Egyptian civilization and the completely different world of today. Dr Malek's absorbing survey shows that wild cats were probably domesticated at least as early as 2000 BC but started to be regularly included in tomb paintings of family life only some 500 years later, during the New Kingdom. Dr Malek draws evidence from a vast range of artistic and written sources to show how the cat became one of the most widely-esteemed animals, revered as a manifestation of the goddess Bastet. Large numbers of mummified cats were buried in the Late Period, and bronze statuettes of cats were dedicated to temples during religious festivals. Illustrating the text with representations of cats in tomb paintings, sculpture, papyri, jewellery, ostraka, mummies and coffins, the author conveys the affection and respect in which cats were held in ancient Egypt. This lively and readable book will surely prove to be the definitive account of the Egyptian cat: aristocrat of domestic animals.

The Everlasting Cat
    Everlasting Cat:

   A delightful book for all animal lovers, The Everlasting Cat takes an historical look at the cat's unique hold on the human imagination and points out its place in religion, folklore, and literature, presenting a refreshing approach to understanding our perception of the feline mystique. Carefully researched, this fascinating volume addresses the myths and superstitions about cats in such contexts as philosophy, legend, folklore, fairy tales and ancient civilizations, sometimes startling the reader with the stranger beliefs about cats and the bizarre roles assigned to them.
