My midweek post is about ‘Cats in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:place w:st="on"><st1:City w:st="on">Battle</st1:City></st1:place>’ and how cats helped the Eygptians win (and also lose!) a battle.
The first story is recorded by ancient historian, Herodotus. He writes about an attack on <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Egypt</st1:place></st1:country-region> in 701 by the Assyrians. Now this invasion caught the Egyptians on the hop, who had become lazy and neglected to maintain a well-trained and armed fighting force.
