Cats are highly regarded by Egyptians of old than any other animal according to many religious texts of ancient Egypt. They are worshiped by their Egyptian owners and mummified when they die. It is alleged that when a foreigner stole an Egyptian cat, Pharaoh would send his army to retrieve it.

The Egyptians and Cats


The Egyptians’ consecration of cats began when the goddess, Bastet was depicted with the head of a cat. She was believed to represent mystery, the night, and the moon.

Additionally, it was thought that Bastet helps both human beings and animals to reproduce, recover from illnesses, and protect dead souls. So, the Egyptians treat cats reverentially because of Bastet. There was also a law that prohibited the sale, abuse, or murder of cats in ancient Egypt. Killing a cat was a capital offense then, such that its penalty was death.

At that time, just anybody could not own a cat. Only the Pharaohs had the honor of having and domesticating this sacred creature. The Pharaohs also considered other animals sacred, such as snakes, cows, and fish, but the cat is the most sacred of all.

The Pelusium Battle

Egypt paid a heavy price for cat worship when Persian king Cambyses II in 525 BC wanted to expand his empire and invaded Egypt. To reach that land, he had to pass through Pelusium on the east side of the Nile Delta. That was a strategic place that the Egyptians wanted to defend at all costs. Psametik III was the ruler at the time.

It was also recorded historically that before the Persian invasion, Cambyses already had a plan to revenge his humiliation. Before the death of Psametik’s father, Pharaoh Amasis, Cambyses requested to marry one of his daughters. But, Amasis deceived him by giving him his predecessor’s daughter. When Cambyses found out that he had been conned by Amasis, he felt insulted and resorted to capturing Egypt – which he achieved in the reign of Psametik, Amasis’ son.
