Ancient Egyptians worshipped cats as reincarnations of gods, which explains why Egypt is no longer a world power any more. While scientists have plenty of mummies to study, they can’t unwrap them without damaging them in the process.

Now scientists are using X-rays to digitally unwrap mummies of cats to discover how Egyptians mummified the animals and how the animals may have lived. Of course, you don’t have to mummify your cat to worship it as a god. Just give it everything it asks for and that will be almost enough to keep any cat happy.
