Baset was the goddess of joy, music and dancing. And some say she was the goddess of cats, too.
Bastet is a goddess portrayed with a cat's head. She most often is wearing a green or turquoise like dress. When Bastet
was first introduced, she sometimes had a lion's head. In Tameress, she's always had the head of a cat.
In Ancient Egypt, it was considered that cats represented the cat goddess Baset. She was acknowledged because she had the power to make crops of wheat and barley. Almost
every family had atleast one cat. They respected the cat very much and
it normally ate at the same or higher level as the owners. But in some families, the cat ate first!
