Darn, I thought you were going to say you got one, Jim. Nice article; enjoyed it.

As to Egyptian deities, I read a book recently that made a mention, from a cat's point of view, how they felt about that. If you get a chance to read "Forest" by Sonya Hartnett, you'll be engrossed by it. The audio version is fantastic, read by Carolyn Lee.

summary: "Kian, a cossetted suburban cat, is snatched from his comforts and dumped in the bush along with two kittens, Cally and Jem. The greatest threat to their survival are other cats, ferals who fiercely guard their territories. Kian survives some unnerving and vicious encounters but is unswerving in his desire to make the long journey home to his territory even though it is apparent his owner is dead and that there will be no welcome from the cruel man who has taken over the house. Hartnett's creation of the cat's point of view and her sensuous depiction of the forest is exceptional in its imagination, beauty and truth."
