History of Cat

The history of the domestic cat gets it’s origins from the Egyptians time as far back as 4000 BC.   The Egyptians held the cat at a very sacred level and even has statues made of Gold of the creature. They were so scared that if anyone killed a cat an immediate death penalty was swiftyly enforced.

Today’s CATS

We’ve come a long ways since then with cats.  Today if a cat is killed no death penalty will be enforced but depending on the person and witnesses a fine or small jail time could be enforced.  Cats are more plentiful than the dog population and can be easier to take care of for the city people.  Cats’s can be left alone and will find there way back home when they see fit.  We used to have a big old black Tom cat back in the day.  At night we would let him out an in the morning we would climb up a tree and jump on our newly finished roof done by kcroofingcompany.com
