Three interesting little facts about animal mummies:

Egyptians mummified various animals, not only in their role as food and pets, but also for religious reasons.

In ancient Egypt mourning for a pet included shaving one’s eyebrows.

At the end of the 19th century, almost 20 tons of mummified Egyptian cats were shipped to England to be used as fertilizer.
