Muzdakis’ article contains some fascinating tidbits about the customs of the time and the reverence with which cats were regarded.

You may consider reading it to your cat (as if your favorite feline didn’t already know about the homage paid to them in days of yore) but remind said feline he or she is living in modern times now and that doesn’t include clawing the sofa with impunity.
