“In ancient Egypt, cats were important members of society. Because they controlled vermin, including snakes such as cobras, they were elevated to divinity. In the event of fire, men would stand guard to make sure no cats ran into the flames. When a cat died, its household would go into mourning, shaving their eyebrows to signify loss. Killing a cat, even accidentally, incurred the harsh penalty of death.” ~Copy Cats, chapter 27
