Cats have been around for a really long time. Cats are kind of small, soft creatures that humans usually keep as pets. These animals, along with the bigger, more ferocious cousins, have all descended from one cat-like animal from 20 million years ago. About 8 million years later, the oldest known domestic cat has developed. Fast forward until 4000 B.C and an African Wildcat wanders into a small town in Egypt, looking for food, mainly rats. The Cat decides to make a new home close to the humans.
