Common House Cat Skull
BC-131 $100.00

The common house cat originated from the wildcat Felis silvestris lybica and has appeared in the archaeological record. On the island of Cyprus, a 9,500-year-old grave site revealed a cat carefully buried with a human. Given that cats are not native to Cyprus, it's reasonable to say that domestication predated that burial. Domestication of the wildcat likely coincided with the domestication of crops; perhaps their value for ridding human grain storage areas of large numbers of rats and mice was recognized and the farmers eventually saw their value as "partners" in pest control.
