Cats

A collection of cat photos and galleries from Photorasa articles. A cat is a small, domesticated, carnivorous mammal with soft fur (of varying lengths and colours depending on the breed), a short snout, extravagant whiskers and retractable claws. Its Latin name is Felis Catus. The cat has evolved from arboreal, tree loving, wild mammals, via selective breeding, to become a very popular pet. It is also very efficient at catching mice, rats and other unwanted vermin that frequent human environments. It has been bred as a pet for a long time, potentially since the time of Ancient Egypt thousands of years ago. Many different cat breeds exist, such as manx, siamese, persian, egyptian, burmese and british blue. The number of cat breeds in existence varies depending on which organisation you ask but there are thought to be at least 50. Each breed can look quite distinctive from the other, with the cats displaying different facial characteristics and fur of various different patterns, colours and lengths.
