Egyptian for "cat!"

To this day, the cat holds a place of affection in the lives of Egyptians. A rather glorious book by Lorraine Chittock juxtaposes photographs with bits of poetry and lore gleaned over the ages. Like:
Surrounded by thorns:
Mother cat carrying babies in mouth.

The book's webpage gives you a nice preview indeed.
