Muhammad is reported to have said that "a love of cats is an aspect of faith". He pro­hib­it­ed the per­se­cu­tion and killing of cats. His favourite cat was a female named Muezza. Ac­cord­ing to a legend, a cat saved Muhammad from a snake. The grateful prophet stroked the cat's back and fore­head, thus blessing all cats, and leaving the stripes on his forehead some cats still have on their coats.
