The history of these feline beasts can be traced back to a weasel like creature that inhabited the earth forty million years ago called Miacis. The Ancient Egyptians had developed a method of storing grain and other food supplies, attracting rats and mice. It was not long before these wild cats were tempted to show themselves by the abundance of the rodent population.
Mankind, of course, saw that it was to their advantage to allow these rat killers free reign. This was the point in history that marked the beginning of their relationship with humankind. Not only did the cat gradually take up residence in Egyptian households, but came to be revered and worshiped as being godlike. It was the Romans and Greeks who introduced the domestic cat throughout Europe. Here the cat was not worshiped, but kept to be petted and for companionship, as well as for keeping the rodent population down.
