Temple to Cat God

20 Jan

This certainly got my attention – hey, with a nickname like Meowmie, what do you expect?

BBC online article here about a 2,000 year old temple that has been found in Alexandria in Egypt, dedicated to Bastet.

Here is a handy page with more info on Bastet. She was considered to have two sides to her nature: a more docile side, and an aggressive side. Some might say that describes some cats rather well. 🙂

I once considered calling a cat Bastet but figured that in an Aussie backyard, the poor thing would end up being called Bastard instead.
