Very Happy - I have only ordered from 13 Moons a few times, but I absolutely love the items that I have bought. Prices are great and staff always personalizes shipments which is a very nice gesture. Shipping is crazy fast. I have been recommending the site to friends and family. I have ordered from other places in the past and I feel more comfortable with ordering from 13 Moons than any other site. Thank you so much!!!

Bastet or Bast was a most popular goddess of ancient Egypt. She was a cat-headed deity. The domestic cat was revered in ancient Egypt because of its mysterious nature and affinity for its human owners. One of the largest, most joyous and elaborate festivals was held in honor of Bastet in the city of Bubastis. It is estimated that 700,000 people attended this festival every year. Egyptologists uncovered catacombs of mummified felines in the ruins of the Temple of Bubastis. It was believed the mummies could bring messages to the gods from their owners.

Bastet was called "The Divine Mother". Her Greek counterpart was the Goddess Artemis, and Roman Goddess Diana. During the Middle Ages, the name Diana, came to mean "Queen of the Witches" and the cat became identified with witchcraft and goddess worship.
