Detailed Information about cats and kittens.
In Latin it is known by “Felis silvestris catus” this name; Domestic cats are usually small and furry mammals. They are also known as house cats when they are kept inside the house as a pet and also simply known as “Cats” when there is no need to describe or distinguish anything from other areas or fields. Cats are mostly called to come and help humans to find any target in house like a mouse or any other dangerous insect due to his extra abilities of hearing and sense of judgment of movements even very small. Cats have more than 70 breeds in all over the globe. There are many special properties in cats that even humans do not have like cats can hear too low and too high frequency sounds than human ears. Cats can even hear the sound made by mice or other very small animal and insects.
Just like their ability of hearing they also have extra abilities to see in darkness but like most other animals’ cats also have a poor color vision they can’t distinguish colors very well but their other sense of smell is very extra ordinary and is very much better than humans. Due to all these extra ordinary sense cats are very good in hunting down small mice and other house small animals and already being used for these purposes.
The English word cat was driven by a Latin word Cattus there were many other names of cat in many other different languages like in Spanish cat was known as “gato”, in French it was named as “chat”, in German it was popular as “Katze”, in Lithuanian it was “kate”, and in Old Church Slavonic it was known as “kotka”.
A group of cats is known as “glaring or a clowder” in which the male cat is known as “Tom” or “Tom Cat” and the female one is called “Queen” and a new born baby cat is known as “kitten”. A pedigreed male progenitor cat is called “sire” and the Queen progenitor is named as “Dam”. In Old English the Kitten was also known as “catling”.
We already have talked about Cat fancy which is the recorded documentation of a pedigree cat. In other words a pedigree cat is one whose ancestry is recorded in a cat fancier company. A pure breed is a cat where all the ancestry contain same breed cats. There are special shows and expeditions in many states of pure and pedigree cats while the non pedigree and mixed ancestry cats are called house cats or domestic cats.
Usually cats have a very high breeding rate but in controlled breeding they can also bred for a registered cat pedigree pets. It’s known as cat fancy. Just because of not controlling the breeding in house held cats, there is so much grown population of cats around the world which I think should be controlled.
In 2007 a research was conducted which says that the domestic cats are descended from near eastern wildcats, Having diverged around 8,000 BC in West Asia.
A study of 2016 a research was conducted which results were very shocking and says that In China science 5,500 BC leopard cats were being kept in houses as domestic cats.
A study of 2007 tells that Cats are the 2nd most popular pets in United States and the 1st was fish.
The population and breeds are grown very fast from last 10 to 15 million years it includes lions, tigers, cougars, leopards and many more. Within all these family members including Lion and tiger, domestic cats belong to Genus Felis, Genus Felis is a part of family group which consist small cats of almost seven species. Members of Genus group are found all over the world almost in every country this group consist on Arabian Sand Cat, Chinese Mountain cat, African wild cat, Europian wild cat and also the jungle cat of southeast Asia among others.
In 1758 cats were classified by Carl Linnaeus as Felis catus in the 10th edition of his Systema Naturae.
All the cats of this genus group who lived in Asia around 5 to 7 million years ago probably share a common ancestor, but the exact with Felidie are close or may be still uncertain, e.g. sometimes chines mountain cat is classified as sub-species of wild cat.
During all these processes of domestication of cats, we see no major change in Cats likes dogs do have. As we can see the Behavior and the physical shape and body of cat have no major change and the main and very important thing is that domestic cats can still survive with wild cats but the domestic dogs can’t survive with wild dogs with the reason of the change in their behavior. In fact our house cats can breed with wild cats and it means that this type of change can be occur in every section of their breed such as Asian leopard cats.
Cats do have a special and intellectual relation and love with humans. There are two main theories about “how cat were domesticated?”. In the first theory says that the cats were brought to domestication with the help of human selection as they were good helper as hunter of vermin. This theory was criticized by many experts as it seems very impossible to do so with cats, as cats do not obey orders especially the wild cats do not obey the orders although they are good in hunting vermin. In 2nd theory which was batter appreciated by experts, it says that wild cats was tolerated by humans and slowly and gradually grabbed from their wild relations to the domestication with artificial and human selection in towns and other areas, as they were a batter companion than other pets and as they were a batter predators.
If we talk about the size of a cat the genus felis cats are almost very same to each other normally their weight are 4 to 5 kilograms. Very rare cats have extraordinary weight like a breed Maine Coon has extra ordinary weight which could be 11 to 20 kilograms. On other hand the there are many species of cat that have weight less than 2kgs. The lightest cat weight ever recorded is 2 kilograms and the world record for the heaviest cat is 21 kg.
