Personalizing the Lovable Cat
Posted by kaviiks on August 19, 2008
For those who share the love of their pets, one of the most cherished would naturally be the cat. Cats are one of the earliest domesticated animals known to man. Their feline presence has evoked much sentimental interest in the ancient Egyptian, Persian and European civilizations. In Egypt for instance, the place of cats is legendary as it also earned a rich meaning in first the courts of the ancient Egyptian kingdom and then into the homes of the lay person. Beautiful cat sculptures and cat decorations were notably found in the tombs of the Pharaohs highlighting the importance that cats bore to this civilization. Celtic lore suggests that cats exist as a spiritual link between humans and the universe and are sacred to the Celtic Goddess. The Scots are also noted to have adopted the cat as their totem animal particularly the McBain tribe. Cats were also gifts offered to kingdoms and resided with power in many ancient Kingdoms like Siam and Egypt.
Perhaps, it is the telling nature of the cats that lend much mystery into the manner in which they are recreated with much fascination into stories and folklores. Their varying personalities, looks and appeals have created much inspiration in literature and the arts. But most importantly, they are one of the favorite domesticated pets here in the United States and cat gifts celebrate the beauty of these delicate beings from bookends, cat plaques to beautiful sculptures of cats and not withstanding, cat doorstops.
Our catalog highlights unique cat statues and figurines as well as other adorable cat gifts for the lover of cats!
