It’s believed that cats were first domesticated starting around 7,500 BC. This was before pottery wheels were even invented, but I think I know why there aren’t a lot of artifacts from that time — the cats were obviously knocking anything the humans made onto the ground and breaking them.

And yet, we’ve stuck together for thousands of years since then, letting them chase mice for us, pee in boxes, and rub their faces on us at the most inconvenient of times. If there’s anything that’s more stuck up than a single cat, it must be a group of cats. If I see more than one I simultaneously get excited that I might get to pet one of them while also becoming terrified that they are planning to rob me. I don’t think that’s an unrealistic outcome.

And we’re talking small, domestic type cats here folks, so don’t start thinking about tigers or anything.

Of course, we know that some groups of animals have quirky terms. Perhaps cats are no different, or perhaps it’s something kind of obvious. Do you know what a group of domestic cats is called?
