Cats in the Bible



Cats in the Bible

Cats are mentioned only once in the Bible, and only in the Apocrypha:
Baruch 6:22-23 -- (about idols)
“Bats and swallows and other birds perch on their heads and bodies, and cats do the same. From all this you can be sure that they are not gods, so have no fear of them.”
Walking all over idols like nowadays they walk over computer keyboards! The Cattitude is constant!
But why only that one reference? Was Yahweh not a cat person? Or if the Egyptians worshipped cats, then the Jews had to snub them? Probably the second.
