    A 9,500 year old burial in Cyprus represents some of the oldest known evidence of human/cat companionships anywhere in the world. But when did this close relationship between humans and cats start? And how did humans help cats take over the world?
    Big thanks to these paleoartists for allowing us to use their wonderful illustrations:

Cats love their bumans just as much as dogs do. Mine are like babies always looking for some pats and always want to sleep with me. They're originally street cats that eventually we took once we moved to a different house and they've been the babies of the family since then. I can't think of a life without them to be honest (same with previous amazing dogs I've had).

“Felis Catus” is a very cute name for a species. And when kitty brings out her claws, she’s called “Feel-us Cactus”.

We did not domesticate them, they domesticated humans to become their staff.

Cats have never been domesticated, only tamed. You might better argue that cats domesticated humans because the benefits are mostly one-sided in favor of the cats, and the cats are virtually unchanged. That a subspecies of cat has evolved ON ITS OWN to better take advantage of our ridiculous infrastructure, is not an indication that humans did something o the cats., you might as well argue that an island with no mice leaving inky insects for food caused cats to become "insect-ivized". BTW, rhe "house rat" isn't considered to be domesticated.

Wild cats and outdoor pet cats kill billions of birds each year. They are one of the biggest causes for the decline in bird populations . I like some cats but dang.....🥺

I actually grew up around dogs. I had over 15 dogs throughout my first 12 years of life, and I picked up how to train them since I was little. Now as a grown man I got me 2 cats when they were 3 months old, and I started training them as I would train dogs. Now they answer my voice, they come when I call, they go when I say, they do paw shakes and sit down on command (basic commands). So I guess that the only reason why people think that cats are more "proud" and hardheaded than dogs is that people rarely try to train a cat. Dog training is a must, and even without anyone telling you that, you get this "gut" feeling that your dog needs to know the basic commands. You take them outside after all, they can be quite strong and big and you have to remain in control. Meanwhile cats are deemed as purely home pets (in most cases) and rarely anyone ever thinks that a cat needs training in basic commands, you just kinda feed them and pet them, and clean out their litter. On cats that are older than 1 year it's gonna be a tough job, however I've managed to train my two kitties since they were 3 months old, and they're literally like dogs. So yeah, it's the owner, not the cat. You need to be a leader and teach them how to be a part of the pack (I know that unlike dogs, cats are mostly lone "wolfs", but I don't think that that instinct is too strong, they can be a part of the pack).

My neighbour received 2 cows, 5 goats and a cat when he traded his daughter to the highest bidder. It was a great wedding for my neighbour, the guests and the cat. The cows didn't care. And the goats were dinner.

600.000.000 cats times 10 cached birds a year (conservative guess) are 6 billion birds killed by house cats. I think we therefore can tolerate a few birds killed by wind farms

I live in Cyprus and I used to have cats at home as a kid. The numbers are not exaggerated they are literally everywhere. The sad part is that they get run over constantly by cars, and for the most part its the cat's fault.

Well call it what you want but not having a herd mentality they don't really hit all the scientific criteria for domestication.

Interestingly, cats often show behavior of catching mice and placing them as a 'gift'. It shows that the cats' role in the household is not forgotten among cats..

I am under constant pressure of 2 wild animals : AKA Domestic cats. They sleep on me for warmth, they steal food whenever I turn my head, they bring animals they killed to the house to show of. I need help.

I thought there was debate over the definition of domestication and not all experts believe cats are domesticated at all because we have not inserted themselves into their social structure (since they don’t have one)

People saying cats aren’t domesticated because they aren’t the exact same as domesticated dogs, like the standard for domestication is dogs.
