A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Cats Collection - A most significant aspect of owning a cat is that ... in reality ... the cat is the owner. There is no other explanation for the fact that the cat is fed, groomed, pampered, stroked, played with, and in virtually all respects, is treated as royalty. The domestic cat (Felis catus) is a member of the cat family (Felidae), which also includes lions, tigers, cheetahs, lynxes, and others. It has lived with man since ancient times and has been widely kept as a pet and as a mouser. It is thought that wild felines were tamed in different parts of the world fairly recently, about 5,000 years ago, compared with the dog about 50,000 years ago. Cat statutes exist from pre-Columbian Florida and 3,000 year old Sanskrit writings speak of the cat as a pet in India. Egypt appears to be where cats were first domesticated, chiefly as guardians of granaries and homes against rodents. The Egyptians actually deified the cat under names such as Bast, Pasht, Ubastet and Bubastis, with the city of Bubastis dedicated to the cat goddess (Ezekiel 30:13, 17 as Pibeseth). The killing of a cat was punishable by death, and when a cat died the family went into mourning, the body being mummified. Cats are on display today in Egyptian museums. The Egyptians prevented the export of cats, but eventually the Phoenicians (world sailors) acquired them and cats spread around the world. Cats experienced incredible cruelty during the Dark Ages and Middle Ages in Europe, but elsewhere cats were treasured. In 936 A.D., the Welsh prince Howel the Good, established a high value for a household cat and laid down legal penalties for its theft or murder. People either love or hate cats. Those that had a positive relationship with cats include Heine, Samuel Johnson, Montaigne, Thoreau, Petrarch, Richelieu, Hugo, Balzac, Darwin, Theodore Roosevelt, Lincoln, Mark Twain, and ... Hemingway, who is quoted as saying, “If you want to write, keep cats.”
