Egyptian animal mummies - so Pets Could Join Parents in Afterlife

Following is an excerpt from an article written by  Karen B. London, Ph.D. is a Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist, Certified Professional Dog Trainer, author, and an Adjunct Faculty in NAU’s Department of Biological Sciences. She wrote about the fascinating topic of animal mummies. Although some animals were mummified for sacrifices to the Egyptian Gods, others were so they could accompany their masters into the afterlife.

 Egyptian animal mummies By

    Animal mummies were definitely beyond my usual experiences with the natural world. Mummies are dead animals that have been preserved due to very specific conditions. (Skin and organs of deceased individuals only resist decay if exposed to specific conditions such as chemicals, extreme cold, low humidity, or hypoxia.) The term “mummies” usually refers to bodies embalmed with chemicals, but “accidental” mummies have been recovered from extreme habitats such as high in the Alps and bogs. 
    In Ancient Egypt, millions of mummies were made on purpose because a well-preserved body was considered critical for a good afterlife. Not all of them were human.
   Egyptians mummified cats for multiple reasons: allowing a cherished pet to accompany a person in the afterlife, to provide food, or as offerings to the goddess Bastet, who was depicted as a lioness, a cat, or a woman with a feline head. Some cats were raised specifically for mummification. They were sold to people to leave in the temple as an offering after they worshipped a particular god. Many such kittens were two to four months old, and some experts believe this was simply because their small size made fitting them into mummy containers easier.
   I knew that cats were held in high esteem by the Ancient Egyptians and even that they were buried with their owners, so the existence of huge numbers of cat mummies was not a big shock. On the other hand, it was surprising to learn that so many other species of animals were mummified. Common pet mummies included dogs, baboons, monkeys, gazelles, and mongooses. Crocodiles, fish and bulls were also mummified in great numbers along with the occasional ram or hippo. According to some sources, the most commonly mummified animal was the ibis, with over four million discovered, making them many times more plentiful than cats, which are in a distant second place.
