Dogs came to the front door, offering their loyal services for a bone or a scrap. A bond was soon formed as their nose and ears and eyes were watchful, and most helpful against enemies.
Cats came to the back door, and soon wormed their way into the house as their superior rodent-killing skills were readily apparent. They didn’t need as much food, and captivated us with their clean habits and purring.
And so it began...
In ancient Egypt, cats were worshipped, idolized and honored by being mummified with their owners.
Cats have never forgotten this.
