Oldest domesticated cat

There are also species that are extensively used or kept as pets by humans, but are not significantly altered from wild-type animals. Most animals on this second table are at least somewhat altered from wild animals by their extensive interactions with humans. Many could not be released into the wild, or are in some way dependent on humans. Aix galericulata — Zürich — Hafen Riesbach 2011-01-14 15-58-32.

Dingoes: a farmer’s new best friend? This page was last edited on 3 January 2018, at 17:53. What kind of pets and domesticated animals did the Vikings have? None the less, people kept animals as companions as well as for their utility around the farm. The Vikings kept cats for their valuable skills as mousers as well as keeping cats for pets. Kittens were sometimes given to new brides as an essential part of setting up a new household. It is especially appropriate that brides should receive cats, since cats were associated with Freyja, the goddess of love. The Vikings believed that Freyja rode a cart drawn by a team of cats. The image of the goddess Freyja in her cat-drawn wagon has been a powerful one since the days of the Vikings. En Freyja er ágætust af ásynjum. Hon á þann bæ á himni, er Fólkvangr heitir. Salr hennar Sessrúmnir, hann er mikill ok fagr. En er hon ferr, þá ekr hon köttum tveim ok sitr í reið. Hon er nákvæmust mönnum til á at heita, ok af hennar nafni er þat tignarnafn, er ríkiskonur eru kallaðar fróvur. Interestingly, though Freyja’s cats certainly catch the popular imagination, Old Norse literature never recorded the names of the goddess’s cats.
