The natural skills of body and mind enable cats to lead lives of peaceful communication, exploration and fearlessness. In common myth, cats are said to have nine lives, to be able to survive risk and to experience enough to satisfy many lifetimes.
We see magic and mysticism in cats, in their own abilities and in our relationships with them. Ancient Egyptians were among the first people to honor and revere cats, and some Egyptian gods were believed to regularly take on the form of a cat to visit the underworld or to banish powers of darkness. It was held that cats who befriended people might teach the words that would bestow protection upon them and their homes.
In cultures around the world, at different times, cats have been seen as exalted, wise, and as bearers of good fortune. Cats also inspire us, with their agility, their curiosity, their beauty, and in the long-standing affection and devotion they have offered us as companions in our lives.
