According to the first website I looked at cats have been domesticated for 10,000 years. The modern domestic cat is apparently descended from a wild ancestor called Felis silvestris lybica and all 600 million housecats in the world can be traced back to five females of this species. Now I’m not sure how accurate this information is so don’t go quoting me especially when I wouldn’t even consider cats to be domesticated. They surely allow us to cohabit with them in return for food and shelter. It sounds a bit more like they’ve domesticated us. Anyway, today’s laser cut was produced as a little memento for a friend. Hand painting these suckers is surprisingly tricky but I got there in the end. And I even got a decent shot of it to boot.
