This is a short story about miraculous animals.
"Bastet" by Sandra Ludwick

What a beautiful creature! Magnificent, majestic, and mysterious are the three words that come to mind when describing this miraculous animal. Large or small, short or somewhat tall, the only thing for certain about this animal is that you will never know what it is thinking.

Covered with fur from its head to its tail, spotted or striped, solid or multicolored, long or short hair, the color diversity never ends.

This animal has the sharpest of senses with ears that can hear over long distances. Its eyes become sharper as the day turns to night. Its nose can detect the keenest of smells. And, its whiskers can navigate the smallest of spaces. Some of the species have been known to travel up to twenty miles per night or run sixty to seventy-five miles an hour.

Evolving approximately fifteen million years ago in fertile lands, this animal has been associated with rebirth and resurrection, and has been thought of as sacred, exalted and intelligent. Known for agility and tricks, as well as nine lives, it has been called Bastet by ancient Egyptians.

Do you know who I am?
