The Origin of Cats

      Cat lineages derived from Martelli wild cat (felis lumensis) which is now become extinct. This cat Felis silvestris were subsequently reduced further degrade the three kinds of cats, namely;

F. silvestris silvestris-(cat central Europe)
F. silvestris ornate (cat deserts of Asia)
F. selviestris lybica (African wild cat)

F. silvetris lybica is inhabiting most of Asia and northern Africa, because the process of taming then this cat ancestors evolved into a pet cat that exist today. The process of domestication of cats is thought to occur naturally due to changes in human behavior that originally nomadic (not reside) into a living colony settled. Humans began to grow crops, build grain storage barn as a food source. It is exciting arrival of rats and other animals, including feral cats. The arrival of these cats benefit for humans to control mice and other
pests, so people sometimes give the leftovers to the cats. Symbiotic relationship lasted for a stray cat that gradually became tame.

The ancient Egyptians knew the cat goddess Mafdet as the killer snake and royal patron. Cat Calls "Pus" probably derived from the name of the cat goddess temple Pasht.
As the development of trade routes between countries in Europe and Asia the cat began to spread to parts of Europe and Asia. These cats are generally short haired, but further to the east longhaired cats are found. Estimated long-haired cat gene derived from manul cat (Felis manul) in Central Asia. Longhaired cat gene spread from Russia, Pakistan, Turkey and Iran then comes the strain Angora and Persian.
