Cat Facts

Let us take a walk back in history, and unravel the mysteries that have surrounded cats. These animals have gone through every emotion displayed by human beings; they have been loved, hated, worshipped and persecuted. Despite, all this, the cat is still a human beings best friend. The African Wildcat was the first to be domesticated some 5000 years ago. This was done because the people of Egypt consumed large amounts of grain, which was being eaten up by rats. Since cats were the only solution to the problem, every person in Egypt began leaving food out for the cats. At this time, the Pharoah felt the need to have more cats to protect his own granaries. As asking everyone to give up their cats might cause a revolt, he declared cats as "demigods," so that people would care for them and they would remain his personal property too. The cat gained in status and strange rules came into existence. One rule stated that if anyone killed a cat, he would be killed too. The other said that if a cat died a natural death, the family had to have their statement confirmed by the priest. People began beating their chest and shaving their eyebrows to display their sadness on the death of a cat.

* When the hair stands up only in a narrow band along the tail and the spine, it is an indication that the cat is ready to attack.
