Cats may be the second-most popular pet in nations like the United States, but cats have an equally rich history of domestication within human societies. It is believed that cats were first domesticated in the Near East around the time of 7500 BCE. The Ancient Egyptians held cats in high regard as far back as 3100 BCE, where the species enjoyed respect on par with the deities of Egyptian mythology.
Today, there are an estimated 220 million domesticated cats held as pets in homes around the world. It is also estimated that there are around 480 million stray cats in the world too. The 95 million cats in the United States make the species the second-most popular pet behind dogs. Estimates suggest that 26% of adults in the UK own a cat, with a population estimated around 10.9 million pet cats.
