Cats have a long history on earth. Domesticated cats have helped humans for centuries.
Cats have been domesticated and loved for over 10,000 years. The text stated that Domesticated means that we tame wild animals to live with humans (source 2). I know from the text that cats have been pets from as far back as 10,000 to 12,000 years ago ( source 1) . In source 1, it said they found 300,000 cats buried in a pet cemetary in Egypt. Similarly, Romans revered cats (Source 1). Furthermore, in Source 2, it said that cats were brought to Cyprus, an island, by boats.
Cats helped humans 10,000 to 12,000 years ago. Based on what I read in Source 1, the people were thrilled that cats killed mice. For instance, cats ate the mice that were in the crops and storehouses (Source 1). In addition, according to the text cats were brought on ships to kill the mice.
Every cat has come from one wildcat. The text stated that scientist studied DNA of cats from long ago and today (Source 2). Cats have conquered every continent but one (Source 2).
