Cats May Have Been Pets Far Longer Than We Thought

Cats may have been our pets for much longer than previously thought.

A new study shows that felines may have been pets for Kazakh pastoralists along the Silk Road over 1,000 years ago.

Tests on a cat skeleton found in southern Kazakhstan revealed that cats may have been pets for nomadic herders.

Researchers say it's rare to find an almost complete cat skeleton from this era.

The skeleton allowed researchers to analyze the bones to see how the cat lived.
