A262 Cats of the World
    The domestic house cat, Felis silvestris catus, descends from a group of desert wildcats that lived in the Near East, but most people do not think of the house cat in a biological context, but rather as a favorite pet.
   The relationship between the domestic house cat and humans dates back over 9,500 years. It is sometimes considered to be symbiotic. The human provides food, a safe place to live, and generally a great deal of attention. In return, the cat honors the human with its presence. Cats are very independent, and the terms “owner” and “master” are just not applicable as they are to dogs. It has been said that humans exist to serve their cats.
   Cats are great companions. Many will entertain their human with funny antics and joyful playfulness. They will crawl up into their human’s lap and purr. They may even provide an occasional lick to express their affection.
   This poster shows 34 breeds from around the world, but a recent study showed that over 95% of all domestic house cats are not true breeds, but rather hybrids. The domestic house cat recently overtook dog breeds as the most popular pet in the United States. They are found in over 53% of all households
