Amenophis III

Ask Amenophis:

  Who is Osiris?  
  Who killed Osiris?  
Amenophis says:

Cats were not actually thought of as gods, but they were sacred to the beloved goddess Bast, who had the head of a cat. People could be put to death for killing a cat.

Egyptian gods were shown with human bodies but often with animal heads.

Gods were thought to live in their temples, where they were fed, clothed, and bathed daily by special priests.
