Importance of Pets

While Ancient Egypt is known for its love of cats, dogs were actually more common than their feline counterparts on most Egyptian households . The reason for this is that cats were considered royalty and not pets for common people. Nevertheless, both dogs and cats were beloved to the point that their owners performed mourning rituals when a pet died. Furthermore, it was common for many of these pets to be mummified and even buried with their masters.
