On March 27, 2013, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issues six new stamps featuring Domestic Cats. Domestic cats have been a part of civilization for nearly five thousand years. In the days of Ancient Egypt, as slaves toiled about the pyramids, cats held a place of honor. The Greeks used cats to combat rodents and began to steal them from the Egyptians, and it soon became a capital crime to steal a cat. As Romans overran the Kingdom of Egypt, the cats of a dying civilization became the spoils of war. By ships, by land, carried by wagon or cart, the cat made its way into the heart of nearly every civilization on Earth. In America, cats made their first appearance in the 1700s, wending their way into the hearts and homes of our founding fathers. Today, cats are among America's favorite pets.
