This is why you should have a cat y’all. Egyptians believed that cats repelled evil spirits.
Cats are evil spirits. They’re just the strongest so all others must bow to their greatness.
Actually according to legend, cats are guardians of the Underworld. So once you are dead if you try to sneak back into the land of the living they send you back where you came from. They protect the living from the dead.
If you ever wonder why a cat stares off into the wild blue yonder and then bolts off for “no reason…”
That cat even looks like it’s accusing him of something like wait a Fucking minute here are you dead did you really think you could slip that shit passed me
I heard somewhere—not Egyptian myth, but folklore—that when they sit around apparently watching something we don’t see, they’re watching ghosts. I always took it for granted.
And I LOVE The Mummy! Brendan (Farmer) Fraser, Oded Fahr, and Arnold Vosloo—and a LIBRARIAN! So happy, me. And a hidden city in Egypt. Made for me, this movie is.
