Description - Cat Mummies by Kelly Trumble
Mummies are a fascinating legacy of ancient Egypt, probably the one that's most familiar today. But did you know that the Egyptians mummified animals as well as humans? Many different kinds of animal mummies have been discovered in Egypt, among them hundreds of thousands of cat mummies. Why did the Egyptians mummify so many cats? To answer this question, Cat Mummies describes the important part cats played in Egyptian religious belief and practice over thousands of ears. Meticulously researched text and illustrations offer a fresh look at everyday life in an ancient civilization, and at a remarkable chapter in the history of the domestic cat.
