  • It's my understanding that they were first domesticated from a wild species of cat known as the African Wildcat. It had something to do with early agriculture when people started to store harvested grain. The stored grain would attract rodents and the rodents attracted the small African Wildcats. Add time and increased human interaction and domestication occurred.
