How We Domesticated Cats (Twice)

#cat #Kitten

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:
