Introdescription The wildcat (''Felis silvestris'') is a smThe wildcat (''Felis silvestris'') is a small cat (Felinae) native to Europe, the western part of Asia, and Africa. It is a hunter of small mammals, birds, and other creatures of a similar or smaller size. A study suggests that all current house cats in the world are descendants from a group of self-domesticating wildcats 10,000 years ago, somewhere in the Near East. It is believed that this domestication occurred when the Agricultural Revolution yielded grain, which would be stored in granaries, that attracted rodents, which in turn attracted cats. The closest relative of the wildcat is the Sand Cat (''Felis margarita''). (Source:Wikipedia) (''Felis margarita''). (Source:Wikipedia)  +
