We all know that cats are the cutest, the most mischevious and quirky animals ever, but did you know, that in ancient Egypt, they were associated with the goddesses Isis and Ba'at, often depicted in various drawings and even mummified? Or that later, in the Middle Ages, cats were killed en masse since people have associated them with witchcraft? Luckily, the feline genocide has ended with a medieval king of Wales Hyvel Dda who made killing or harming cats illegal.
With this much of ours and cats history overlapping, it is only natural, that our feline companions have gathered many symbolic meanings to them. While a black cat might be seen as an omen of bad luck, cats, in general, are seen as symbols for independence, rebellion, and intelligence.
