They say a dog is a man’s best friend. This may be true for many people, but what about that other ‘traditional pet’, the cat? Cats have been pets for centuries – there are even statues of cats in Egyptian tombs. In fact, so revered were cats by the Egyptians, one of their Gods, Bastet, has the face of a cat.
Cats may not be droolingly adoring, but they do indeed love their families in their own, sometimes haughty way, and give just as much pleasure as their canine counterparts. Who can but help going “Aw!” at the sight of a kitten.
