For a long time, archaeologists have been looking for the first evidence of the relationship between humans and cats.
They found a species of wildcat buried near a person on Cyprus about 9,500 years ago, a testament to the closeness of a cat-to-human relationship.
And since ancient Egypt, there are paintings – some 4,000 years old – depicting a cat, often sitting next to a woman’s chair.
Recently, new archaeological evidence for the relationship between humans and cats has been found in China.
The evidence was published Monday in the Academy of Sciences Proceedings in the form of documents, including a series of hypotheses about the relationship between humans and cats.
