3. African wildcat
Today’s domestic cat shares a common ancestry with the African Wildcat - a species still found today (Felis silvestris lybica in Latin).
Changes in man’s farming systems led to natural evolution of the wild cats to suit a changing environment.
As you can see from the video, the African Wildcat is very similar in size and shape to today’s domestic cat.
