    Through the common domesticated cat, the ancient Egyptians achieved a most uncommon mission-immortality. ### Ilene Springer writes on ancient Egypt and archaeology and is a student of museum studies at Harvard University. Source: The Cat in Ancient Egypt by Jaromir Malek (British Museum Press, ) The Cat in Ancient Egypt By Ilene Springer. The cult of the cat, as it was known, was functional in Egypt right since the 16 th century BCE. However, the culmination of the cult came about only by the 8 th century BCE, when Sheshonq I (or Sheshonq I), the founder of the Twenty-second Dynasty developed Bubastis into an important city. Bubastis, situated on the east of the Nile Delta, was a major center for the worship of Bast. Activities: (From the Ancient Egypt Activity Book.) Make Your Own Papyrus Papyrus grew along the banks of the Nile and was utilized by the Egyptians to make mats, baskets, boats, ropes and sandals. But, the most notable way was used was for making paper. The Dead Sea scrolls (ancient Hebrew scrolls discovered in the caves by the Dead Sea) were written on papyrus.

    Today cats can be seen throughout Egypt, wandering in bazaars or asleep in shaded courtyards, evidence of an enduring relationship with humans that this book warmly captures. The Cat in Ancient Egypt is an informative and entertaining work that will delight cat lovers and history buffs alike/5(87). The library of Scribe Kenhirkhopeshef also contained a Dream Book papyrus. This Dream Book was written long before Kenhirkhopeshefs time even then the text was considered ancient but the content remained relevant. The Dream Book contains approximately ancient dreams, within which it describes about 78 activities and emotions. Cat fanciers who consider their pets majestic have history on their side: felines were domesticated in ancient Egypt around B.C. while their European cousins still ran wild. Over the centuries they gained an exalted position in royal society—revered as an incarnation of a goddess, modeled in bronze statuettes, and even mummified and buried with their owners.
