The domestic cat (Felis cattus) is probably a descendent of a wild cat that lived in Africa that became domesticated many thousands of years ago. With their ancestor in mind , the domestic cat must be cared for according to their nature and biology . They are obligate carnivores, need animal protein in their diet and not plant protein. Whether one owns a cat or a cat has decided to own you, is a responsibility to take seriously. Their health and welfare depends on you, their carer. What you do will determine if they are happy and content with the life they lead.
