| Mummified Cat and Mouse |
This practice has been verified, by the recent findings of numerous mummified cats being found within the walls of older European walls. A cat was found within the walls of a 17th century Cottage in Pendle Hill.
Unlike the only Ancient Egyptian practices where the Mummification process was done with sacred animals, usually acquaintances of the dead to continue on with them in the afterlife, but the only difference is that the animals were mummified at death.
According to documentation the rat might of been accidentally placed within the walls.
