  1. I owned two cougars till the died of old age, they were well cared for and had proper cages that met State Guidelines and the cages were indoors. Every living animal was wild to begin with. Take your regular house cat. The history of our modern day cat (Felis silvestris catus) begins with her descent from one of five separate wild cats: the Sardinian wildcat (Felis silvestris lybica), the European wildcat (F. s. silvestris), the Central Asian wildcat (F.s. ornata), the subsaharan African wildcat (F.s. cafra and the Chinese desert cat (F.s. bieti). Each of these species is a distinctive subspecies of F. silvestris. Genetic analysis suggests that all domestic cats derive from at least five founder cats from the Fertile Crescent region, from whence they (or rather their descendants) were transported around the world. The oldest archaeological evidence for domesticated cats was found on the Greek island of Cyprus, where several animal species including cats were introduced by 7500 BC. Further, at the Neolithic site of Shillourokambos, a purposeful cat burial was found next to a human burial, dated between 9500-9200 years before the present.

    • A recent study suggests that cats were domesticated at the same time as that of wheat and barley in the Fertile Crescent region, that is about 10,000 years ago. Time will tell–the only archaeological data supporting that is at Shillourokambos in Cyprus. This exciting news is definitely not as far-fetched as it might be, given the role of the cat as the hunter of grain-eating rodents. It’s one of those arguments about who may have been more domesticated in this relationship–the cat or the human?

      • Your comment has been published, Chris. Although I disapprove of any sort of trade in wild cat species. Think about stopping.

        • Thank you. I should’ve added that I have the appropriate permits & allowed to own at my approved facility. However, Cougars have been most difficult to find. Thanks

    • I note that your statement has a selfish tone to it. “I prefer”…What about the welfare of cats? Do you give thought to that? I don’t see it in the tone of your single sentence.
