Mafdet the Cat Goddess

Mafdet was the first known cat-headed deity in ancient Egypt. During the First Dynasty (2920–2770 BC), she was regarded as protector of the Pharaoh’s chambers against evil. Many other cats followed in her footsteps as feline gods, and cats were eventually regarded as sacred in different cultures as a result. You could even be punished by death in some societies like the Roman Empire for murdering a cat. Some people would swear that cats still think they deserve the same treatment as our rightful rulers today. Well, we might as well appease them by giving our drawing of Mafdet some divine color!
