YOU area re BADASS Pay attention to the things you're drawn to, the things you're good at, the things you lose yourself in, the things that make you stand up and say, "My foot! I can't feel my foot!" because you've been sitting in the same position for hours, totally engrossed. Wednesday May 5 2021
It was the cat, itself, who came to prize the territory around the homes of the ancient farmer, or the wharf of the ancient mariner. They were drawn to a plentiful supply of prey in the form of rodents-which brought their species and ours to be inseparably linked. A study from 2017 looked at the genetics of over 200 cats, from all five wild subspecies, along with cat remains from stone age Romania, and even Egyptian cat mummies, and found that f. /ybica in the Near East in 4,400 BCE, and in North Africa around 1,500 BCE, gave rise to the domestic cat, likely because it was here where the earliest agricultural civilizations occurred.
