Cat is one of mankind's closest friends. Since cats have been domesticated by humans, they tend to be domesticated more and more, and gradually become family pets around the world. They are also friends of humans and one of the sustenance of human emotions. Cats have lovely appearance and flexible body. Generally speaking, domestic cats (Felis catus) have the characteristics of being docile, lively, irritable but clingy; while wild cats (Felis silvestris) are always vigilant in order to survive. This review analyzes the origin, evolution and domestication of cats, and studies the physiological characteristics of cats, including their body circulatory system and sensory characteristics, to further understand cats.
