This is why you should have a cat y’all. Egyptians believed that cats repelled evil spirits.
Cats are evil spirits. They’re just the strongest so all others must bow to their greatness.
Actually according to legend, cats are guardians of the Underworld. So once you are dead if you try to sneak back into the land of the living they send you back where you came from. They protect the living from the dead.
If you ever wonder why a cat stares off into the wild blue yonder and then bolts off for “no reason…”
So my 5 year old son has hit that age where nighttime is scary because monsters. His dad let him watch this movie (much to my chagrin) except, instead of making the situation worse, it actually eliminated it completely. Now when he goes to bed he takes the cat with him. The cat is more than happy to curl up at the foot of his bed, and he’s no longer afraid because, don’t worry mommy, the kitty will protect me.
