Rebecca Lesses, associate professor of Jewish studies
In an article about cats, the Examiner noted a recent blog posting by Lesses about the lack of any mention of cats in the Bible. “Last week at Shabbat lunch with friends and fellow cat-lovers, we were discussing the puzzling fact that the Bible does not mention domesticated cats, although there surely must have been cats living in Israelite towns and villages,” she said. “There are a number of words in the Bible for larger cats – more than one word for lion, and for leopard – but not for house cats. This discovery only deepens the mystery. Other animals are mentioned – dogs and mice, for example – but not the cat.”
