    Ancient Egypt would execute someone for killing a cat.

    They were considered gods, after all. And they never have forgotten it!

    Cats will, however, suck up all available space on a bed when given the opportunity


    I usually wake up with 2 or 3 of the little bedhogs

    My mother actually got rid of a Siamese Cat because it got into the crib with my baby brother. She thought the cat might be trying to smother the baby. I told her she got rid of the wrong one…

    My cat used to sit on the end of the changing table and stroke my daughter’s face while I changed her diaper.

    When my last cat died my dachshund expanded her own space. My wife and I were actually left with a net loss of space. A twenty pound dog with a fifty pound butt.

    Prior to the Bubonic Plague decimating Europe, cats were considered evil creatures that preyed upon helpless, innocent mice. Funny how people hated such a graceful, loving animal that helped to curtail the loss of their grain crops.

    …your cat understands you perfectly, it is much more probable that you need to learn how to understand your cat…

    Me too, tammy. It elicited a horse laugh – cat laugh?
    BTW, cats slept in the crib with my grandchildren. Everyone seems to have survived.

    Mine does…most nights he sleeps in his spot in the den; on nights that I don’t feel good, he curls up on the end of the bed….and does that until I’m better.

    However the stransvection of witches have the broom head facing them not behind them. Also in 1207 the Catholic Church recognized and identified such things officially. Even to the word they used.
    -
    Cats, bats, other animals were called ‘familiars’ or minor demons in animal form. Hiding their unnatural traits.
    -
    Cats, crocodiles, hippos, snakes etc were considered sacred since they represented their various gods. Not gods themselves.

    There’s a more practical reason as well, Curmudgeon68. Cats are natural predators of mice, rats, small birds and large insects, all of whom eat grain. Keeping cats around is a form of natural pest control for farmers and the Egyptians understood it. And, of course, cats are naturally affectionate and probably made friends with humanity by about 8000 BCE.

    Maybe even earlier than that. Reading the DNA clocks of dogs showed they had first appeared 80,000 years ago. DNA can fill in the blanks of the fossil record.
