SOME INTERESTING FACTS:
This fluffy friend of ours is a small, usually furry, domesticated, carnivorous mammal that is valued by humans for its companionship and for its ability to hunt vermin and household pests.
They have been associated with humans for at least 9,500 years, and are currently the most popular pet in the world. Owing to their close association with humans. They are now found almost everywhere in the world.
The writer David Derbyshire cites a 2007 CE research project in which, “the study used DNA samples from 979 wild and domestic kittens to piece together the feline family tree.
They looked for markers in mitochondrial DNA – a type of genetic material passed down from mothers to kittens which can reveal when wild and domestic felines lineages were most closely related.”
