Silvestris, still around

As already noted, today’s domestic cat probably descended from Felis silvestris, and the wild silvestris is still very much alive. The various sub-species are described in this section. All of them look a lot like our house pet cats, but, as you will see, their capacity for being tamed varies greatly. Worth noting: all the silvestris wildcats possess larger brains than those of domestic cats.
