"Why shouldn't cats govern?" (video)
It's about time someone asked.
Wrote Diodorus Siculus: "Whoever kills a cat in Egypt is condemned to death, whether he committed this crime deliberately or not. The people gather and kill him. An unfortunate Roman, who accidentally killed a cat, could not be saved, either by King Ptolemy of Egypt or by the fear which Rome inspired."
