Bastet Picture

how I came on the idea?

Whenever I fondle my cat, he starts to purr, this sounds like a motor. and I'm a fan of egyptian mythology, so the idea was born.

why 7 ?
in germany cats have 7 lives.
“According to a myth in many cultures, cats have multiple lives. In many countries, they are believed to have nine lives, but in some Spanish-speaking regions they are said to have seven lives, while in Turkish and Arabic traditions the number of lives is six. The myth is attributed to the natural suppleness and swiftness cats exhibit to escape life-threatening situations.”
