Since I have not been without a cat since the crib they tend to dominate my attention with horses ever so slightly behind. Probably because they don’t live in the house and sleep on the bed. Well, just about.

Cats were considered holy in the halls of ancient Egypt. The ancient Egyptians held cats in the highest esteem, the penalties for injuring or killing a cat were severe.

Since then, catsĀ have held a unique place in the animal kingdom, in that they are one of the few domestic animals that humans have lived with, loved and even bred, but have never been able to put to work.
