The Ancient Egyptians made Cat Mummies and buried artifacts to follow them in the Afterlife.
Found in tombs of mummified cats were rats and mice for the cats to hunt in the afterlife.
But the Egyptians didn’t want it to be all work and no play for their feline idols.
They also left saucers of milk in the kitty tombs so they could lap in leisure.
Of Mice with Men.
