But I find the common link of cat and bird based deities throughout the world interesting. There is the sphinx in Egypt, and Quetzalcoatl in Aztec mythology, as well as many other examples I'm sure.
I've also come across some mythology, which is much more abstract, which claims a few of the most intelligent ET species are felines and reptillians (reptiles are linked to birds genetically). It's all really fascinating, good post.
