Default The Cat in Ancient Egypt

Customer Review: Unsual subject treated very well
From the wild cats domesticated in Egypt around 2,000 BC to the worship of the cat goddess Baster, this readable but authoritive book has many color as well as black and white illustrations. Published by the British Museum Press in London for the museum there, it is an absorbing read that would interest any cat lover who wanted to get a little beyond the "pretty pictures of cute cats & kittens with scant text" as depicted in so many books. I recommend it to add to your feline library, or just to your library!
Customer Review: Great Book for Cat Lovers and Eyptophiles
This is a wonderful look into the evolution of the relationship between the Ancient Egyptians and the cat. Starting from the Wildcats of the swamps to the "domestic" cat and to the gods who took the cat as their theogeny, Malek probes the relationship between animal, the Ancient Egyptians, and their Gods. A great book overall with well-documented and researched material.
