Christians with cats in tow

While Christians have occasionally been anticat, in the past there was a connection between the spread of Christianity and the spread of cats. Christianity began in Palestine, right next door to Egypt. In its pre-Christian days, Egypt practically embargoed the exporting of cats (after all, they were sacred), but as Christianity penetrated Egypt, the cat embargo was lifted, and cats spread north into Europe along with Christianity.
