The Finnish finish

Few people are familiar with the mythology of Finland, but some of it can be found in the old Finnish epic the Kalevala. We learn from this ancient poem that the Finns (before the country became Christian, that is) believed that a sleigh drawn by cats arrived to fetch their souls to heaven (or elsewhere) at the time of death. Most cat owners would consider that a lovely way to be introduced to the afterlife.
