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