Cats were of huge importance to them their very lives depended on it. Egypt had to store grain to feed its people the cats protected the grain from mice. Even in ancient times mice would overrun areas in Africa eating everything in sight. Luckily in egypt there was more cats than people to make sure it didn't happen in egypt. Worshipping Bastet was only part of it. Killing a cat held the same sentence as killing a person because of the importance.

Bottom line you cant live along a river bank and not have to deal with mice.

...they mummified mosquitoes with laser precision and right angles that can't be matched by NASA.
