I know kitty owners have wondered if they have a Cat or Wild Animal for the Home. For instance cats and dogs have long been an integral part of many families. I would say kittens are only second to dogs in popularity as family pets. Besides cats haven’t always been the domesticated household animal that we know.

Therefore Miacis is thought to be the common ancestor of all land-dwelling carnivores.
I will say the felines were on earth before pet dogs — millions of years before the canine. Therefore the first appearance of the prehistoric cats is Smilodon, the saber-toothed cat tiger. For example felines were not as easily domesticated as dogs. I know these animals had strong hunting intuition which didn’t translate into co-operative instincts. I know cats brought their hunting instincts into the home. For that reason the early domestication of cats occurred primarily in Africa.

I know feline owners have wondered if they have a Cat or Wild Animal for the Home. For example kitty products should be durable, lightweight material that assemble and disassemble easily. I know that taking care of kitty cats can be a full time if you don’t have the correct kitten tree. For instance a veteran pet owner will tell you that cats *do* “bond” with humans
