Event Description

"Since its domestication in Egypt between 4000 and 3000 BC, the cat has been celebrated in art, as well as folktales and fables. Etruscan sculptors from 6th century BC, 18th century painter Jean Baptiste-Simeon Chardin, and contemporary artists Allison Schulnik and Gillian Carnegie have all drawn upon the cat for subject matter. Ancient Egyptians were so enamored with their feline friends that if a cat died in a home of a natural death, all of the inhabitants would shave their eyebrows in a sign of mourning. If one were to kill a cat either intentionally or unintentionally, they would be put to death. We no longer live in a time of such extremes, but the cat still holds its power over us. In 2010, Canadians owned eight-and-a-half million cats.
