A lovely pin featuring the Sacred Cat makes a great gift for cat lovers!
The cat was sacred in ancient Egypt (600 - 30 B.C.). Admired for its virility, strength and agility, it was also the symbol of Bastet, the benevolent cat goddess who represented motherhood and joy. She was often portrayed as a woman with a cat's head. Bubastis, a city in Lower Egypt, was famous for its yearly festival in honor of Bastet and for its great cemetery of mummified cats.
