Here’s Why We’re So Obsessed With Cats


Cat obsession isn’t something new. Thousands of years ago, cats were worshipped by Egyptians and since then we’ve used our furry friends for everything from catching rodents on long ocean voyages to simple companionship. It’s no wonder that cats are America’s favorite pet in our homes.
You think that humans have domesticated cats in the past? You think cats are our pets? You’re wrong. Unlike other animal species, cats have domesticated themselves- essentially by choosing proximity to people as their survival strategy. They appeared in the first settlements of men. The first domesticated cats were scavengers out for food, which means only the strongest survived.
Over time, they learned how to live with humans and have lost a bit of their scavenging abilities, but they’ve won over our hearts.
It’s not the cats that are obsessed with us. Felines have taken over our hearts, humans are obsessed with cats.
