Not that we haven't done that before. However, the article throws in a few things I hadn't seen well referenced before:
In addition to being sacred, Diodorus notes their useful characteristics, such
as confronting asps positioned to bite and warding off other snakes. Cats were
also of service to fowlers in their search for birds in the Nile marshes, as
attested by a wall painting in the New Kingdom tomb of Nebamun at Thebes.
Diodorus explains that a portion of land for sacred cats was consecrated, which
provided for their upkeep and made them self-supporting.
Beautiful cat face from 1st century AD here.
