blast from the past

hey great britain, getting buried with your pets is nothing new: the egyptians started worshiping cats 4,000 years ago. ancient egypt for the win.

this passage is inscribed in the royal tombs in thebes: "thou art the Great Cat, the avenger of the gods, and the judge of words, and the president of the sovereign chiefs and the governor of the holy circle; thou art indeed... the Great Cat." morty would tend to agree.

fun fact: if you google "cat worship," madcat is the third result.
