Pet, worship, same thing with cats. I know, because I have four cats, and they think they’re the gods of the house. They kind of are, though. They vomit everywhere, and who cleans it up? Me. Humans dealing with divine messes is exactly how religions work.
And I suppose cats featuring in Assassin’s Creed: Origins was inevitable – Ancient Egyptians were totally obsessed with them. This is maximum historical authenticity, you guys. In fact, I bet the pyramids were actually just scratching posts but the twine has rotted off. Explains so much.

Game’s out on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on 27 October. With cats.
