What can we say about cats that hasn’t already been said hundreds of times before? Cat we’re worshiped by the Egyptians, kept as pets to help keep down the pest population at farms and divides humanity with the ever present question of “are you a cat or dog person?” It would seem that the majority of people side with cats as there are 88 million pet cats and 74 million dogs. Sadly, people haven’t always loved cats. During the Middle Ages, cats were associated with witchcraft, and on St. John’s Day, people all over Europe would stuff them into sacks and toss the cats into bonfires. On holy days, people celebrated by tossing cats from church towers. Oddly enough, Europe was decimated by the Black Plague which was carried on the backs of rats.
