[...] If, therefore, we prefer the former supposition, we must conclude that, originally at least, the pig was revered rather than abhorred by the Israelites. We are confirmed in this opinion by observing that down to the time of Isaiah some of the Jews used to meet secretly in gardens to eat the flesh of swine and mice as a religious rite. [...]

Cats and mice depicted in Ancient Egypt

(click the link for the picture.  The artifacts are pretty neat.)

Uhm, cheesed to meet you? Egyptian literature and art used the tiny mouse as a satirical figure. They were depicted as lords waited upon by cat servants, and as soldiers attacking a city inhabited by cats. You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Ancient Egyptian humour. These 3,000 year old fragments of papyrus show scenes of animals taking on human roles; a hippo makes beer, a lion and gazelle play a board game and a cat waits on a mouse. c.1250BC-1150BCE.

Engraving of small Ancient Egyptian bronze mouse in Lodovico Moscardo’s collection in Verona. His 'Note overo memorie del museo' (1656) seems to have set a new standard in early museum cataloguing.

But the clearest scene is this central one, which depicts a cat attending a mouse seated in a throne. Here we see the same topsy-turvy inversions of usual species hierarchies as in the other Deir el-Medina animal papyrus: the cat becomes the mouse's worshipful servant (7/12) You are not allowed to view links.

Egyptian artists really enjoyed this elevation of the mouse's usual humble position, and we see lots of variations on the theme. Here's an example of a mouse being carried on a litter and revered by jackals from Turin's Egyptian Museum (photo by Guillemette Andreu-Lanoë) (9/12) You are not allowed to view links.

Weapon used in Lee Zeldin attack was $10 plastic cat keychain

The weapon used in the attack on Republican New York gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin appears to be a plastic keychain fob that looks like a cartoon cat’s head and is marketed for “self-defense.”

The weapon resembles the “My Kitty Plastic Self-Defense Keychain Weapon,” which is designed to mimic a cat’s face with holes for its eyes and other cut-outs for its nose and whiskers.

The site also says it can be used to “deliver devastating strikes.”
