earliest human and cats relationship

原來早在5300年前,已有貓幫助人類捕捉偷糧的老鼠。考古研究員在中國陜西華縣的一個遺址發現兩隻貓的骨頭。雖然無法證明牠們是家貓,卻是最早人和貓有共生關係的證據。研究推測貓主要是吃糧倉裡的老鼠,但其中一隻較少吃肉,相信是因吃了人類的剩菜或被餵養。

there were cats helping human get rid of grain-stealing rats back in 5300 years ago? bones from two cats were found in a site in the early village of Quanhucun in china. even though these cats might not be domesticated, but this is the earliest evidence for relationship between humans and cats. they also found out one of the cats was eating grain millet grown by the farmers and there is a big chance it was being fed.
