Royal Egyptian Cat
This lesson was inspired by the book Mummy Cat by Marcus Ewert which tells the story of Egyptian Queen Hatshepsut’s cat who finds himself awakened from his mummified state to roam the pyramid.
ABOUT CATS IN ANCIENT EGYPT
In ancient Egypt, cats were linked to the cat goddess Bastet. Many households had pet cats that were important members of the family. When a beloved cat died, its owners would often shave their eyebrows to signify their grief. 😳 Sometimes after their death, cats were mummified just like people. We asked the question; “Would you shave your eyebrows for your cat??” 😂😂 The answer was of course a resounding NOOOOO!!
