    Bast – Egyptian Cat Goddess
    In ancient Egypt, cats were often worshipped as deities — and anyone who lives with a cat knows they haven't forgotten that, either! In particular, Bast was one of the most highly honored feline gods. Also called Bastet, she was a goddess of sex and fertility. According to the Encyclopedia of World Myth, Bast was originally portrayed as a lioness, but by the time of the Middle Kingdom, around 900 b.c.e., she had morphed into more of a domestic cat. Sometimes, she was portrayed with kittens beside her, as an homage to her role as a goddess of fertility.

    The cult of Bast originally sprouted up around the town of Bubastis, which takes its name from her. In her role as protector — not only of households, but of all of Lower Egypt — she guarded rural folk and nobility alike. She was often associated with the sun god, Ra, and in later times became a bit of a solar deity herself. When Greek culture moved into Egypt, Bast was portrayed as a moon goddess instead.

    When Bast's temple at Per-Bast was excavated, the mummified remains of over a quarter of a million cats were discovered, acccording to the Encylopedia Mythica. During the heyday of ancient Egypt, cats were bedecked in gold jewelry and permitted to eat from their owners' plates. When a cat died, it was honored with an elaborate ceremony, mummification, and interment at Per-Bast.

    Bast was also seen as a goddess who protected mothers and their newborn children. In Egyptian magical texts, a woman suffering from infertility might make an offering to Bast in hopes that this would help her conceive. In later years, Bast became strongly connected with Mut, a mother goddess figure, and with the Greek Artemis.

    This depiction is The Weighing of the Heart ritual as recorded in chapter 125 of the funerar text known as the Book of the Dead.
    Ancient Egyptians believed that, when they died, they would be judged on their behaviors in their lifetime before they could be granted access into the afterlife.
    In the Weighing of the Heart ceremony the deceased is brought before Osiris, the God of the dead and ther afterlife. The heart of the deceased is weighed on a pair of enormous scales against a feather, which represents Maat. Maat is the Egyptian concept of truth, justice and morality. If the heart's weight is equal to or less than the weight of the feather, the deceased would be granted access into the afterlife. If the heart was heavy with the weight of wrongdoings, the balance would sink and the heart would be devoured by Ammit. Ammit is the beast with the head of a crocodile the body of a lion and the back legs of a hippopotamus who sat ready by the scales. Ancient Egyptians thought the heart to be the center of thought, memory, emotions, intellect and personality and therefore the most important organ in the body. It was never removed, like the other organs, during the mummification process because its presence in the body for this ritual is crucial for passage into the afterlife. If the deceased was found to have done wrong in life and the heart weighed down by wrongdoings and devoured by Ammit, they were not thought to enter a place of eternal torment, like Hell, but to cease to exist at all. This outcome was more terrifying to ancient Egyptians than any concept of hell imaginable. ~CC
