What are your plans for this (snowy) Sunday? I suggest food.

You could be cooking angrily, like these guys from the  Luttrell Psalter.

Cat with Kittens
Egyptian
ca. 644-30 B.C.
The Egyptians associated the female cat’s fertility and motherly care with several divinities. The base of the statuette of Cat with Kittens is inscribed with a request that Bastet grant life, directly linking the cat pictured here with the goddess Bastet. The kittens here point to the benevolent aspect of this feline divinity, while her pointed ears emphasize the feline’s attentive vigilance and ability to protect its young.
