My great great uncle Ralph learned all about Egypt at the museum. One night he came to the conclusion that Ancient Egypt was ruled by cats. My mother blames this on bad fish he ate, but Ralph had all sorts of ways to “prove” his point. The Sphinx is mostly a lion… There were lots of paintings of cats at the exhibit…He got a feeling – like a tingle – in his left paw that he took as a sign that he was correct. After he came came up with his theory he became obsessed with pyramids.
