    Deified in Ancient Egypt (they protected grain against rats and mice), cats were often associated with witches and persecuted during the Middle Ages: they were said to bring plague (in fact their fleas); a black cat was a bad omen; cats are independent and only appear when and where they want (and not often on façades!).
