THE CAT IN EGYPT.
The domestic cat, so far as Egypt
is concerned, is generally supposed
to be somewhat of an upstart. In
Egypt its cultus had existed for ages
before our ancestors dreamed of
paying it that species of -worship
which at present appears to connect
it with the tutelary genius of the
hearth. We have the authority of
Herodotus for the fact that when a
cat died in an Egyptian home the
members of the bereaved family
shave off their eyebrows, and that
of Diodorus for the touching state
ment that although Egyptians have
been known to cat their fellow crea
tures during famines, no instauco of
cat eating was ever heard of. If an
Egyptian happened to find a dead
cat, says the Sicilian historian, he
was careful not to approach it closely
for fear of being suspected of its
murder. Standing at a distance he
made the sad loss known by cries of
distress. During conflagrations, ac
cording to Herodotus, the Egyptian
'spectators allow the (lames to rage
unchecked, devoting their attention
to saving the cats belonging to the
burning houses. A Roman happened
one" day to kill a cut by accident.
The melancholy event took place at
a time when the Egyptian Govern
ment was very anxious to conciliate
llomc. But iu spite of the exertions
of the King and his Ministers the
mob broke into the Roman's dwell
ings and intentionally did to him
what he had accidentally done to
the cat. Of this act of popular ven
geance Diodorus says he was a spec
tator. According to Lenormnnt the
cat does not appear on Egyptian
sculptures earlier than the twelfth
dynasty (2020 B. C), and therefore
the credit of its domestication is due
o the inhabitants of the Upper Nile.
That process, remarks Helm, must
have taken a long time, but it was
thoroughly successful in the end.
The domestic cat very xarcly deserts
civilization in favor of savage free
dom, its character offering i this
respect a strong contrast to that of
its fellow Oriental, the gypsy. How
the tame cat made its way into
Europe is uncertain, although it is
reported to have travolcd from Egypt
by way of Cyprus. The period of
its arrival, also, is shrouded in mysj
lory. It docs not nccm to have been
known iu classic limes, and llic early
centuries of our era appear to liavfl
been unaware of its existence. In
no catless a period the arrival of
Mich a benificcnt beast as that which
Jiu kept Whitington's memory green
might well be hailed with acclamation.
It is easy to believe that the progress
of the cot was raided when it had
oucc, shown itself. Silently, but
irresistibly, it seems to have sub.
jugutcd the European hearth. It U
terrible to think of how much pleas
ure as well as profit the world would
have been deprived if the cat's
career luid been cut prematurely
short. Most forttumte was it, as
Helm remarks, that Its introduction
preceded those epochs in wHloU IU
association with Idolatry might have
caused it to fall a victim to the
fanaticism of Islam or the accctic
ism of Christianity. 2c Nine
