The cat’s domestic and wild have intrigued man for thousands of years, and throughout that time the relationship of these animals with man has varied widely. Man has valued cats as hunters, worshiped them as gods, and sacrificed them as demons. Whatever their fortunes, however the animals have survived and still hold great fascination for humans. They have often been used as symbols of beauty, grace, mystery, and power, and they have been favorite subjects for many artists and writers.

Today, the domestic cat (house kittens) is second only to the dog in popularity as a house pet. No one knows exactly how many domestic cats there are in the United States, but researchers estimate that more than 30 million are owned as pets. There is no way to estimate the numbers of homeless cats that roam about freely as feral animals (those that had been tame but have returned to living in a wild state). There probably are many millions of such cats wandering about in the streets and alleys of cities and towns across the country.

Kittens are in the order of carnivorous animals, Carnivores, and make up the cat family, Felidae. There are six genera in the family: Felis, Lynx, Neofelis, Uncia, Acinonyx, and Panthera. The domestic, or house, cat is genus Felis. The scientific names for the wild cats are given in the illustrated table with this article. The big, or great, cats make up the genus Panther. For information about these cats, see the articles Lion, Tiger, Leopard, and Jaguar.

All cats, large or small, have the same general proportions of body and the same food habits. All are carnivores (meat eaters) and kill their own food. Depending on the size of the cat, this food ranges from small mice and birds up to large zebras, deer, antelope, and cattle. Any animal which the kitten is large and strong enough to kill will serve for food. Cats do not run their victims down, as do wolves, but stalk them and then pounce on them. Sometimes they rush for a short distance at high speed to leap upon their prey.

A cat has soft cushioned toes on which it moves very silently. It also has five sharp I pointed claws on each of its front feet and four on each of its hind feet. With these it seizes, claws, and tears its victim, while it bites at the throat with its teeth.

The cats tongue is covered with tiny hard growths called papillae, which make the tongue feel rough to the touch. The pupil of the eye is opened wide in dull light or darkness, and in bright light is reduced to a narrow vertical (up and down) slit. From the sides of the mouth grow long, heavy whiskers.

The sounds made by cats are mewing, purring, howling, and screaming. Some of the large cats, such as the lion and tiger, often roar, while the jaguar and leopard utter a sound described as a hoarse cough or bark. One interesting thing about these four cats is that because of a difference in the formation of certain bones in the throat, they do not purr.
