I went to the museum the other day, and saw a reproduction of Bast, sitting there with an earrings in her ears. I'm wondering, did the ancient Egyptians
put earrings in their cats' ears? (No, I have no plans on starting a new trend.)

I do not think they did. Bast or Bastet was the god/goddess of cats and were only depicted as being seen with earrings. Cats were possibly adorned with other garb. Besides piercing a cat's ears would cause the cat pain and the ancient Egyptians viewed that harming a cat was a crime and they were punished if they did so.
