There are some theories that claim people didn't tame dogs and cats, dogs
and cats tamed people.... there was food for dogs and cats around people,
and the closer they hung around near people and got them to cooperate, the
easier life was for the dogs and cats... domestic dogs and cats have longer,
healthier lifespans, and an easier time of it, that their relatives which
aren't catered to by people.
