color ancient egyptian cats!

all images copyright and by kindest permission of l. a. vocelle
Pet Museum friend, The Great Cat (L. A. Vocelle) has created a wonderful coloring book of ancient Egyptian cat imagery!  It's called Ancient Egyptian Cats: A Coloring Book for Adults and Children (and the link takes you to its Amazon page for the getting thereof). 

The images are inspired by statues and wall bas-reliefs.  Don't you want to get to coloring right now?  

I went looking for a poem to Bast (the cat goddess) and this one pops up a great deal:

Hail Bast! Hail Bast! Hail Bast,
coming forth from the secret place,
may there be given to me splendor
in the place of incense, herbs,
and love-joys, peace of heart in the
place of bread and beer.
