Editorial Reviews

More than 600 million claim residence in households across six continents... and now they may have dethroned dogs as the most popular pet on earth. An exterminator, fierce hunter and favorite companion - aloof and affectionate at the same time - the cat leapt out of the wood and adopted us on its own terms thousands of years ago. But how did man and beast form their unconventional relationship? From mummified cats unearthed in Egypt to bizarre genetic mutations discovered around the globe, National Geographic presents the latest scientific evidence to reveal how cats and people set off on a journey along the same road.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

“The Science of Cats” is a National Geographic documentary about the search for the origins of Felis catus, the domestic cat. We get to meet a French archaeologist who celebrated with an aperitif rather than champagne when he found a 9,200 year old cat skeleton in Cyprus. Meanwhile, an American research team roams the streets of Cairo and Abu Simbel in Egypt, trying to obtain DNA samples from the mouths of feral cats. The locals wonder what on earth these crazy Westerners are up to. They have a point, LOL. Scottish wildcats and very bizarre domestic breeds are also featured. The story ends with the research team declaring Egypt to be the cradle of cats as we know them. Quite funny and entertaining, especially when one of the serious scientists in Abu Simbel exclaims “Kitty alert”. Three stars.

We now know that we (homo sapiens) originated in the rift zone of East Africa and traveled to inhabit the entire earth. Scientists at the University of California, Davis are using DNA analysis on cats in two countries (Egypt and Turkey) where cats were thought to have originated. Egypt appears to be the original home for cats because they had a prominent place in art there during the age of the Pharaohs
and were often mummified as were humans. Cats in Turkey had a prominent place as a rat catcher in the grain fields.
To gather DNA from cats the U.C. Davis scientists put food on a stick that captured saliva for DNA analysis.Cats were prominent in Africa and the middle east at a time that the Europeans believed that cats were agents of the devil.
