Want to see this and a host of other cat-shaped treasures? Then you'd better plan to get over to the Brooklyn Museum, where the exhibition Divine Felines: Cats of Ancient Egypt has just gotten underway. It'll be up for over a year. Meanwhile, the show's curator, Yekaterina Barbash, gave a friendly interview to Catster that you'll like reading.
