Cat History -- how they came to our lives
Archaeologists digging in sites identified as belonging to the Bronze or Iron Ages have found fossil remains of what were probably wildcats living rough, rather like bombsite cats during the War or wild and country farm cats today. They probably lived by their wits and relied upon their hunting skill and a little stealing of human food during the long, cold winter to stay alive.
