In ancient Egypt, people used to worship cats. Historians believe that was the same time period when Egypt lost its status as a world power. Regardless of the actual facts, Egyptians have made bronze statues of cats to show their obsession since hoarding cats in a mobile home wasn’t available to them at that time.
In one home, the owner was going to throw out a bronze cat but then later discovered it was 2,500 years old and worth between £5,000-10,000. If you think some people spend lavishly on their cats, look how much people are willing to spend on a bronze statue.
Of course, real cats are priceless, but this shows how much people of today still value cats. To read more about the bronze cat, click here.
