They still are!
Ancient Egyptians worshiped cats as living gods.

Everything happens for a reason - I firmly believe this.

Just a question, but why do you not feel that dogs are not a great teaching tool for unconditional love?
I probably mis-spoke (mis-wrote?) a bit. Not that dogs are NOT teaching tools, but that dogs as the loyal and loving beings they are, can teach us by their example, about unconditional love; cats teach us for almost the opposite reason-with cats WE have to learn unconditional love, since cats largely, choose us and give their love on their own time. As a friend of mine who is a fire chief says, he never finds cat skeletons, but they do find dogs staying with their master regardless of the danger to themselves. They are just two different, noble beings who teach us different lessons. Hope that makes some sense without dissing on dogs OR cats.

Thank you all for your thoughts, and, Redhead, yeah I agree I don't want to overanalyze (as I am prone to do-one day I'll relate my funny anecdote about 'overanalyzing'), and we do just adore her. We believe she is a distinct breed, called a 'toyger' - given that my first cat as a child was 'Tiger' -long "i"; and my cat through childhood into adulthood was 'Tigger' (as in Pooh bear), I thought it made nice circular sense for this one to be 'Toyger'. Moonie, did you mean that Egyptians still worship cats, or that cats are still 'gods'. Contrary to my many sons, I think cats are wonderfully spiritual and intelligent animals, though I may not be quite up to 'worshipping' them. My belief is that cats unlike dogs, are a great teaching tool for kids on unconditional love. Still curious if cats and supernatural/paranatural activity have been reported to be linked somehow??
when we had a ton of spirit activity we ended up with 3 new cats and a lot of the activity was demonic. not sure what the role was of the cats but they picked our home and wouldnt leave.
