I'm certain the Egyptians noted that where there were cats, less disease ocurred. The cats would eat the mice and other pests which historically spread plague!

Yes, my friends, she is cool and beauty and there is something mystic around her as in each artwork...

Pat, you are right. These attributes are certainly the basis for the cat-cult in the Ancient Egypt but there is something particular in the natur of these creatures which you cannot drill like other mammals as for example the human beings ;-)

I have loved your posts of your holiday Castor. Sorry you were not well. I love Pats explanation re the Egyptians and cats. I am terribly allergic to cats or I would have one as a pet.

Thanks for your sympathy, Grace! It's a pity that you are allergic to cats ... besides, next week I have to make an allergic test due to my COPD although I don't have a cat at the moment, probably I am allergic to my work at the hospital ;-)

That's a great surprise, Spencer, you came to visit me on my blog:-)
I am very pleased! Funny, that you have a "Bastet" in your house! Perhaps I can see her in the new layout!
Have a great weekend too! Cheers!
