Types of Cats

The variety of breed of cats is amazing. They have been domesticated by humans for about 9,000 years. The earliest cats were most likely bred to hunt vermin. In more recent times, they have been bred for different characteristics such as having long hair or short hair, and today there are some seventy different breeds available. Not all of these breeds are internationally recognised as yet (although about forty breeds have been).

Cats belong to the family Felidae, which includes lions, jaguars, tigers, wild cats and domesticated cats.

I hope that you find this hubpage interesting, informative and fun.
