Livestream: The “Hisstory” of the Domestic Cat

Wednesday, October 13, 2021

Join us for this livestream as we explore humanity's long history with felines.

Are cats actually domesticated or have they just decided that they like living with us? Some may say the phrase "domestic cat" is an oxymoron, but however you look at it, humans and cats have been living together for thousands of years. So long in fact, we aren't exactly sure when it started. They have been called civilization's pet, gods in ancient Egypt, and demonized by the Catholic Church.
