Precious Girls

On watch

Simply be you, live your life simply

My daughters as some people call them.  They are truly like the little girls I would have loved to have.  They are sisters strange as it may be and about 95% Egyptian Mau.

Egyptian Mau

I was told by a friend this breed is about 7,000 years old on research I have only managed to find 1550 years.

The Egyptian Mau is a descendent of Bastet or Bast the Cat goddess.

Bastet

Role in ancient Egypt

Bastet was originally a fierce lioness warrior goddess of the sun worshiped throughout most of ancient Egyptian history, but later she was changed into the cat goddess that is familiar today, becoming Bastet. She then was depicted as the daughter of Ra and Isis, and the consort of Ptah, with whom she had a son Maahes.

As protector of Lower Egypt, she was seen as defender of the king, and consequently of the sun god, Ra. Along with other deities such as Hathor, Sekhmet, and Isis, Bastet was associated with the Eye of Ra. She has been depicted as fighting the evil snake named Apep, an enemy of Ra. In addition to her solar connections, sometimes she was called “eye of the moon”

Bastet was also a goddess of pregnancy and childbirth, possibly because of the fertility of the domestic cat.

Images of Bastet were often created from alabaster. The goddess was sometimes depicted holding a ceremonial sistrum in one hand and an aegis in the other—the aegis usually resembling a collar or gorget, embellished with a lioness head.

Bastet was also depicted as the goddess of protection against contagious diseases and evil spirits.

To my amazement both cats have the collar or necklace pattern in their fur plus a medallion on their chest.

They have looked after me now for 6.5 years.  I am so grateful to Our Heavenly Father  and Mother Earth for bringing them into my life.  They have helped me survive many trials and illnesses.

With this has come a new learning experience for me.  They have taught me many things and learning to communicate with them has been marvellous really opened my soul and life.

We can learn so much from our fury friends only if we allow them to be and work with us in their way.

I talk a lot to them and verbally discipline them and this is not taken too well by either of them.  It is like interfering with their thinking and how they are dealing with the situation.

Cats are very much other worldly and our energies combine when I work in other words they boost the spiritual power.

Sekhmet and Bastet

Enjoy working with your pets.
