Domestic Cat Origins

Here's a link to an interesting article about the origins of domestic cats

It seems kitties have had human slaves longer than was previously thought.

Yes very interesing

"The felidae family is well known as a successful predator - very deadly, very ferocious, very threatening to all species including humankind," said co-author Stephen O'Brien, of the US National Cancer Institute. "

EVEN HUMANS ACCORDIND TO STEPHEN O BRIEN 'NO MARK !!!!'

"But this little guy actually chose not to be that," he said, "he actually chose to be a little bit friendly and also was a very good mouser."

Good on you 'spudo spudo doo' !!!


I am suspicious of any scientist or media who cannot link to the source of their information.No source = lies .

I imagine, as he said Felidae, and not 'feral cats,' he was not suggesting that feral cats have long been a danger to human kind. Instead, he was probably referring to Tasha and Tigger's ancestors long ago and far away . . .


Tas and Tig being residents of Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge

So our domestic cats started separating themselves possibly 100,00 ago from their wild cousins... until now, when people think it's cool to start mixing them back to their wild cousins of various varities and genuses. Oh well, I know some people here have hybrids, so I don't want to hijack the thread with a whole other issue.

yes wildcats...especially the big ones are a danger to humans. thats a common fact. Dont need a "source" for that LOL!
He was saying some cats-the ones that became domestic, chose their domesticity.

That article was very interesting!

Personally I like how the Egyptians revered the cat
