Ancient Egyptians worshipped a Cat Goddess, often represented as half feline, half woman, whom they called Bastet.
Thousands of years later we still worship felines, they rule the Internet, and they are the divine queens and kings of our homes.
We treat our cats like deities, we buy them gourmet cat food, expensive toys (that they ignore in favor of a box or a crumpled piece of paper), and cat condos for their entertainment and relaxation.
But the reverence and awe isn`t mutual, or dogs may look upon us as gods, but cats barely give us the time of day.
But is there anything or anybody that cats worship?
There`s a pampered kitty in Japan named Busao who worships his space heater. Busao looks upon his heater with a mix of reverence and awe.
I wish my cats looked at me the same way that Busao looks at his heater, after all I spend a small fortune looking after their every need.
Cat lovers know that their pets always make themselves comfortable in the warmest place in the house, be it next to a space heater or the furnace.
Maybe if I wrapped myself in an electric blanket my spoiled cats would always cuddle on my lap, and treat me like Buddha.
