Play our Ultimate Cat Lovers Quiz and test your knowledge of feline trivia. Domesticated cats are fairly small animals, much smaller than their larger cousins like lions and tigers. Not only are they a lot smaller, they are also a lot friendlier and also good to have around. In fact, they are one of the most popular pets and can be found in households all over the world.
It is thought that cats were first domesticated around 10,000 years ago. They would have lived near human settlements because there was food, and humans would have welcomed them because they helped eradicate vermin. As time went by, cats evolved to be more suited to life around humans and they became domesticated.
Once domesticated, humans started using artificial selection to breed cats to have certain characteristics. They were bred to be good hunters, and some were also bred to look as good as possible.
Did you know that while it is commonly thought that the ancient Egyptians were the first to domesticate cats, the oldest known pet cat was recently found in a 9,500-year-old grave on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. This grave predates early Egyptian art depicting cats by 4,000 years or more.
