Domestic cats most likely originated from European wildcats and were considered a subspecies until 2017. They had a very long relationship with humans, as ancient Egyptians might have domesticated cats as early as 4,000 years ago. All breeds of domestic cats have very similar body shapes and sizes.
They are very agile and flexible as they can jump five times their height and rotate half of their spine 180 degrees because of the many vertebrae in their spine. Ever wonder why cats can slip through narrow spaces? This is due to a lack of collar bone, and the scapulae lie medially on their body.
