Quick Post





I have been crazy busy, and only able to blog sporadically the last few days. I hope you all will forgive me.


Things should calm down soon though, hopefully by the weekend, so here's a quick fact until then. In ancient Egypt killing a cat (even accidently) was a crime punishable by death. Cats found this to be fair judgement.

Poor kitties, but it also explains where there are millions of them there. Also, apparently these days, and even in Middle Egypt (after ancient times) people would kill and mummify cats and sell them as authentic souvenirs. What people do for a buck...

Zombie said...

Kitty!!! :D

D4 said...

All is forgiven. Also, that's pretty hardcore.

OatmealStout said...

Team Panda said...

LunaSihne said...

Hehe, cute. Lolcats rule us now.

WanderingWriter said...

No worries. Cute kitteh

Jay said...

those smug cats...

Fang said...

In future Blogosphere, being busy and not blogging for a few days, even unintentional, was concidered a crime, and punishable by death. Only a few bloggers will find this to be fair.
Beware.

I think killing any animal should be a crime punishable by death!

G said...

Malkavian said...

hahahah Fair Judgement indeed

izzfoshizzz said...

sorry to hear that. hopefully you get back soon!

Fenix said...

@wayward disposition: that ideal would certainly effect the American agriculture. like, all cattle farmers would be killed and everyone's diet would change drastically.

anyways, we forgive you for this, I too am busy with finals and stuff.

Fenix said...

@alphabeta: cats were revered as the guardians of the underworld and considered holy. so.. yeah. plus they're super cute
