a little post for a littler mummy

Is everyone getting excited for Halloween yet? We are around here. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I keep trying to tape a tiny witch hat on Elizabeth, but she's not buying it.

This is a quick post, because it's not much. I found a touching photo of a tiny cat mummy - a kitten perhaps? - from a BBC.co.uk "Sacred Animals of Egypt Gallery." It's true I can't really tell how big it is from the photo (nor did they give any info on where it is exactly), but it seems like a darling scrap of a thing, somebody's pet miw tenderly wrapped and given to the ages. If you're interested in pet mummies, perhaps you'll also find it dear. Here it is.

The Cats were very impressed. They opine that the Egyptians were the last civilized Humans they've dealt with.

Spoiled beasts!

I know it sounds weird, but don't you think that's a sweet mummy, KL?
