Cats are really their own best friend, but they like us nonetheless.
My friend had made mention that she read an article that made the declaration: cats domesticated themselves. So much for dogs. The cats have it!
With human agriculture and grain storage attracting rodents and mice, cats entered our world over 12,000 years ago. Let the cat worship begin! Well, they did start it.
Today's domestic cats come from a small variety of wildcats.
This study also explains why my little grey tabby calico wanted outside so bad. She lives out there with the others who have wandered my way. While the study explains her genetics, it also explains the indoor, never want to go outside, cats I have as well.
Good to know it is not me.
Have a great and wonderful day!
