The last to be domesticated

Cat owners may well wonder if any cat can ever be fully domesticated. At any rate, the fossil records indicate that cats were certainly among the last of animals to be domesticated. This makes sense: early man found the dog useful as a hunter, the horse for transportation and cattle and swine and sheep as sources of food and hides. Apparently our human ancestors were slow to realize cats’ potential as rodent exterminators.
