What is it with Egypt and cats?

In ancient Egypt, cats were seen as sacred animals deserving of special food. Cats were known as ‘mau’ which sounds rather like the meow sound we love to hear. It was also in Egypt where cats were first domesticated. They were particularly handy to have around to keep snakes and other pests at bay (just one reason you could give to a landlord to persuade them to let you keep cats)!

Ancient Egyptians were polytheists and believed in lots of gods. Many of these were represented as cats and worshipped. Some of the Egyptian pharaohs even had their cats mummified next to them in their tombs! All this shows, that an Egyptian name makes a great choice for a new cat name. Their exotic sound will always sound exciting!
