Cat goddess and local deity of the town of Bubastis "Tell Basta". she is almost represented as cat headed. Bastet was originally a lioness goddess very early associated with Sekhmet ,during the Middle Kingdom she is identified with" Hathor" goddess of joy, music, dancing and later with "Mut" wife of god "Amun" .It is in Lower Egypt that she appears particularly in the form of a cat. In the Middle Kingdom the cat appeared as Bastet’s sacred animal and after the New Kingdom she was depicted with a woman with a cat’s head carrying a sacred rattle and a box or basket and sometimes accompanied by a small group of kittens. Cemeteries of cats have been excavated not only at Bubasts but also at other sites in the Nile valley at Luxor, Saqqara ’thenecropolis of Memphis’.. etc.
