Caturday Art: Pharaoh's Day

I found out something strange about this place where I live. They don't celebrate Father's Day. Instead they have Pharaoh's Day. And they were doing this long before American Pharoah made his run for glory. (And what is with that horse anyway, that he can't spell his name right?)

Now, from a purely feline perspective, this makes sense. For the most part, Cat fathers are lousy dads. They just knock up some female and split, leaving her to deal with the kittens. I mean, talk about dead beat dads! I never even knew mine. But we do have a link to Egypt, our species having come from over in Egypt and all. And we were Gods there!

And Pharaoh's were Gods. So if I'm a Pharaoh, that makes me doubly God worthy. Or something like that. Sounds good to me. BTW, how do you like my royal barge?

Heart of the Nile

Now, the Demon Cat insists she is Queen of Denial. Fine. Great for her. She's the Queen of a stinky old river full of snakes and crocodiles and water monitors. Me? I've the got the Valley of the Kings, full of pyramids and sphinxes and treasure and other cool stuff. I think I've got the better deal.

I look particularly kingly and Pharaoh-ish in this picture, don't you think?

Valley of the Kings

Domestic cats are descended from the African Wildcat which looks very much like a regular old tabby cat. Tabby is the natural coat pattern for a cat, it helps us blend in with our surroundings. That's why there are so many tabbies in the world. So whatever breed out there wants to lay claim to being the sacred cat of Egypt, they're wrong. TABBY CATS were there first. We're the original sacred cats of Egypt. The King Cat. The God Cat.

The Pharaoh.

That being said, Happy Pharaoh's Day to all of you, my subjects!
