The Egyptians shared their environment with many animals, birds, fishes and reptiles. Those animals appeared on many objects including sculptures, jewellery and hieroglyphs. Those animals were considered as a part made by the god of the sun and as many earthly versions of many gods.
The cat was sacred, the Egyptian goddess of love, fertility and joy, Bas or Bastet.
