Cats in Ancient Egypt
By Vickie Chao
  

1     The ancient Egyptians loved animals. They had many animal gods. Among those, cats were perhaps the most popular.
 
2     About 6,000 years ago, the Egyptians became very troubled by mice and rats. Those rodents bred fast and ate everything! They especially loved eating people's food. The Egyptians tried to put their food away. They stored it in a place with no windows. But even that failed to work. One day, an African wild cat wandered into an Egyptian village. This cat had a tawny, stripped fur coat. It was swift in hunting down and killing mice and rats. When the Egyptians saw that, they were very happy. They started to leave scraps of food outside of their homes, so more African wild cats would come and live in their villages. Later on, the Egyptians tamed those African wild cats and turned them into pets.
