“While some ancient older civilisations such as Egypt and Rome kept cats as pets, we don’t know much about cats outside of those times and places,” Haruda said. “So this find is helping us fill in the picture that gives us a more complete picture about how people treated animals in the past.”

So, why can’t modern-day humans just accept that we are meant to live in harmony with the animals whom our ancestors had domesticated as companions?  Perhaps it is because many humans have yet to learn compassion, sharing and kindness.
