Ships from and sold by (¯& BOOKS·'´¯). The book starts off intriguingly with the discovery in an Egyptian desert of thousands and thousands of cat mummies that had lain undisturbed for two millennia. How did they get there? And why were cats so important to the Egyptians? To answer those questions, Trumble takes readers back in time to the beginnings of Egyptian civilization, when animal totems protected tribes. Cats, sacred animals and objects of veneration, deserved respect in burial and thus came the mummifications.

Clearly written text offers an answer to the question of why ancient Egyptians mummified thousands and thousands of cats

Mummies are a fascinating legacy of ancient Egypt, probably the one that's most familiar today. But did you know that the Egyptians mummified animals as well as humans? Many different kinds of animal mummies have been discovered in Egypt, among them hundreds of thousands of cat mummies. Why did the Egyptians mummify so many cats?

Trumble states with certainty that Egyptians worshipped and revered their cats. Only in an end note, nearly 40 pages later, does she note that X rays of some cat and kitten mummies indicate cats were deliberately strangled.

What an amazing find! We came across this book while looking for Ancient Egypt textbooks and we love it. The author has done an outstanding job and is obviously well researched. The fascination the Egyptians had with cats is very interesting and this book draws you straight into it. Highly recommended and the illustrations are the perfect accompaniment. Just lovely!

Short and Sweet are the only words that can describe this book. With beautiful color illustrations on every page, you can really begin to understand what these people and their surroundings looked like and what they believed in. Even though I rated this book 5 stars, because of the wonderful artwork and descriptive words, this book was very short. I'm in the 7th Grade, and it only took me 10 minutes to finish, so I recommend just reading it in your library or bookstore rather than buying it outright. All in all, 'Cat Mummies' was very informative, though it could have been just a bit longer.
