banana How Cats Used Humans to Conquer the World
Advertisement
Sometime around the invention of agriculture, the cats came crawling. It was mice and rats, probably, that attracted the wild felines. The rats came because of stores of grain, made possible by human agriculture. And so cats and humans began their millennia-long coexistence.

This relationship has been good for us of course—formerly because cats caught the disease-carrying pests stealing our food and presently because cleaning up their hairballs somehow gives purpose to our modern lives. But this relationship has been great for cats as species, too. From their native home in the Middle East, the first tamed cats followed humans out on ships and expeditions to take over the world—settling on six continents with even the occasional foray to Antarctica. Domestication has been a fantastically successful evolutionary strategy for cats.

A comprehensive new study of DNA from ancient cat skeletons and mummies spanning 9,000 years traces the spread of cats from the Middle East to the rest of the world. The whole study, from conception to publication, took about 10 years—not least because of the work it took to find ancient cat remains.

Humans brought cats onto ships to catch mice and, in the process, spread cats all around the world.

You can see on that Cats face the natural superiority look they express, they never hide that fact.

RE: How Cats Used Humans to Conquer the World
i thought this thread was going to talk about how

the parasite that lives in cats that we can catch

actually makes women IQ go up

and not to coincidentally IQ goes down when men are infected with it

it has been linked to many personality/mental disorders
