Domesticated cats, in the mammalian Order Carnivora, family felidae, are digitgrades, walking on their toes, and have acute hearing, balance and flexibility.

Humans adopted cats, Felis catus, into our lives millenia ago for their skills as predators in protecting stored grains from rodents and vermin destruction.

The ancient Egyptians worshipped the cat goddess Bast of the sun and war, and mummified cats in their death rituals.

Domestic cats have patterned coats such as tuxedo, tabby, smoke, calico, point and tortoiseshell, which are not necessarily dependent on breed.
