A Quote

Well, Ailia got me onto Good Reads and I've slowly been messing around on there.  Tonight as I browsed through the quotes I ran across this one and found it funny enough to share:

"In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this."

Anyone recognize the goddess in the picture?  She is usually seen with a cat head, but the body of a woman.

It's Bastet.

Bast is the Egyptian goddess usually shown with a cat's head. She can be honored by burning a green candle (her sacred color) and "being nice to cats".

I can picture a cat penciling in the hieroglyphics on the wall for that last instruction!

Yep! Bast(et) is right!
