Cats are the world’s most popular pets. Cats are likely to enjoy this popularity because they can be at once affectionate and independent: They do not require any formal training, they groom themselves, and they can be left alone without moping about their owners, but they still greet us with affection when we get home. Humans and cats have a long history together. DNA evidence indicates the pet cat came from an Arabian wildcat, Felis silvestris lybica, which originated 10,000 to 15,000 years ago in the Middle East. Cats can be very affectionate, but they can also be choosy. Wildcats are solitary, and most other cats regard them as rivals. Domestic cats tend to view other cats with suspicion, even fear.
As a whole, cats are more affordable than dogs. The adoption fee for a kitten or cat is lower than that of a puppy or a dog – particularly during kitten season when the shelter is overrun with kittens. Some shelters offer two-for-one deals on a pair of kittens or waive their fees. Cats might have a bad reputation for being cold or distant; they understand (and appreciate) personal space. A cat won’t require constant attention, which will allow you to sit and relax after working all week.
Considering so much of our history overlapped with our feline companions, it is only natural for them to have accumulated many symbolic meanings. Black cats might not be considered good luck, but cats, in general, are symbols of independence, rebellion, and intelligence.
