BASTET CAT

The most beloved cat of all Egypt was Bastet (or Bast), the gentle, fun-loving cat goddess. She was a daughter of Ra, the Sun. Bastet stays home with her family. She watches over them, protecting them from dangers both seen and unseen with magical powers over demons and dark forces.

Like all cats, Bastet was playful and loved to celebrate, and was a goddess of joy. Always shown as a regal cat, Bastet represented the beneficial powers of the moon, and was thought to be the eye of the moon.

Available in 5 1/2 or 8 1/2 inches.
