Cat Folklore and Cat Magick | Cat Symbolism | Cat as Totem - Cats have been sacred to more than one religion, and at different times and places have been considered both good and bad luck-bringers. The Egyptian
goddess Bast was both lion-headed and cat-headed and attended by cats and therefore cats were sacred and revered in Egypt; killing one was a heinous crime, and when a household cat died mourning rites were performed for it. Cats were often found in temples and were ritually fed; stray cats were treated with honor and fed, and the household cat was allowed to share the family's food. Cat amulets were produced and elaborate cat-sized sarcophagi crafted for cats who had died, who were often embalmed as humans were. Followers of the goddess
Diana also considered the cat sacred because she once assumed the form of a cat, and cats were under her special protection. In Scandinavia, Freya's chariot was drawn by cats. The Celtic
Goddess Ceridwen was also attended by white cats, who carried out her orders on earth.
