The cat was once worshiped by ancient Egyptians and has continued to enchant humans over the centuries, becoming the most popular household pet.

All domesticated cats are believed to be descendants of a group of desert wildcats (Felis silvestris lybica), beginning around 10,000 years ago in the Middle East. Domestic cats are known for their hunting skills, amazing agility and loving (yet independent) personalities.
