Section 2:Immigration of cats

Most people think that the domestic cat first appeared in ancient Egypt around 5 millennia ago but recent studies concluded that domestic cats most likely came from Persia. Wherever they came from they were revered as godly creatures, in Egypt for example they were one of the symbols of Bastet the god of cats.Also the penalty of killing a cat was death and if there was a fire Egyptians would rush in there and save the cats before doing anything else.
