The Domestication of Cats

When where cats first domesticated?  Apparently most people think it happened in the Middle East.  Ancient Egyptians (who also worshipped cats) kept cats to keep the gluttonous mice from devouring their grain stores.  Around that time traders brought cats to Italy where they were lovingly accepted. Soon all of Europe wanted cats and they even made their way to America via ships.  People who own cats are very lucky, because cats are usually good natured and long living.

    Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start my
    own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.

    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
