This exhibition is about cats. Cats and the lifelong friendships we form with our furry friends. Bonds so strong and endearment so deep and ancient, it permeates our lives through time. You find cats in scary stories, in cute stories, they’re a sign of bad luck in some cultures and good luck in others, worshipped as deities or shunned like pests. Remnants of our relationships with the floofy furs are found not just all over the world, but all over the internet as well.
The most famous example of the first named cat dates from the reign of Thutmosis III (1479-1425 BC). The cat was named ‘nDm’ or ‘nDmt, pronounced ‘Nedjem’ or ‘Nedjemet’ meaning ‘sweet’ or ‘pleasant’.
