All Creatures Go To Heaven

The Ancient Egyptians and Mayans worshipped their beloved in rituals and celebrations that honored and celebrated the dead.   

Other than the pyramids, almost nothing evokes more awe and mystery than the fascination ancient Egyptians had with cats.  Rising first to to the status of sacred animals and then on to the most esteemed deities... like no other creature before them.   In ancient Mayan and Native American rock art, the big cats are also frequently seen as powerful  helpers to the Creator and guides to the spirit world.

The most famous cat goddesses in the world, first revered by the ancient Egyptians, were Bastet and the lion-headed Sekhmet - Good and evil.   The Egyptians loved Bastet so much that she became a household goddess and protector of women, children and domestic cats.  She was also the goddess of sunrise, music, dance, pleasure, as well as family, fertility and birth.

Once a year around October 31st, the festival of Bastet would occur with hundreds of thousands
