Cats Crossed Continents to Be Close To Us, Says Gene Study!

It may seem as though cats don’t need us, however, a new study into feline genetics has indicated that the global kitty population only boomed when they moved in with humans.
The research, which was presented and reported by Nature, seems to show two distinct waves of growth in cat numbers:
first around 10,000 years ago, as humans first started cultivating crops, and second, when we started taking to the seas.

The researchers behind the study did sequencing on DNA from more than 200 cats of various generations discovered in tombs, burial sites, and other archaeological sites, from as far back as 15,000 years ago, to animals born in the 1700s. Even among this limited sample, they discovered links in mitochondrial DNA, genetic information passed down through the maternal line only — suggesting that cat families had either moved or been taken near to human civilizations. This mitochondrial connection was spotted between wild cats which were found in the Middle East and creatures discovered close to the fertile east Mediterranean, a region well-known for its early agriculture. Researchers also found many connections between cats that lived millennia later, linking mummified kitties discovered in Egyptian tombs with cats found as far away as Bulgaria, Turkey, and sub-Saharan Africa.
Agriculture was a catalyst for cat populations, the study’s authors are claiming because the need to store grain and other crops drew nearby rodents — rodents that in turn became food for wily felines. Ancient humans presumably appreciated that these new arrivals were helping keep their stores free from infestation, and as a bonus, were super cute. A second population explosion appeared to coincide right along with the advent of boat travel, where a ship’s cat could keep vital food stores safe from rats and mice that stowed away on board. Perhaps the most exciting part of all the study is the mention that a cat was discovered in a thousand-year-old Viking burial site, conjuring up the image of horn-hatted kitties sailing the ocean on longboats.
The report’s authors suggest it represents some of the first serious studies into how cats came to live alongside us.
“We don’t know the history of ancient cats,” evolutionary geneticist and study author Eva-Maria Geigl claims. “We do not know their origin, we don’t know how their dispersal occurred.”
As befitting the animals themselves, cats are still a great mystery while dogs, on the other hand, have had their backgrounds carefully mapped out. However, that’s probably only fair — dogs used to be wolves, and now look at what we’ve done to them.

Antarctic Drama

Holding Firm

Close-up of a walrus, its back against a breaking wave, in Cape Vankarem in Chukotka, Russia.
“Every autumn walruses swim to this rookery,” Korostelev writes.
“One day, walking along the beach away from the rookery, I came across a lone walrus … sleeping on the shore, its tusks [stuck] in the sand.
I carefully crept up to it and photographed it with a wide-angle lens.”

Antarctic Drama

“This is the most unexpected split photo I’ve seen,” writes Enric Sala,.
“The lonely krill seems to be checking for the presence of the penguin predator.
At the same time, we can see the ice and landscape on the surface.
It's mostly monochromatic, but the reddish krill attracts one's eye.”

Cloak of Color

A thick fog rolls over Sofia and appears to glow as it takes on the city’s light.
Beneath the cloak of color, visitors to Bulgaria’s capital will find a lively collection of museums,
galleries, restaurants, and recently excavated Roman ruins from about 2,000 years ago.

Light the Way

The Falcon 9 lifts off from Cape Canaveral in Florida, drawing a brilliant arc of light across a clear, dark sky.
Grant snapped this photo on “a cold March morning.”
SpaceX, designer and manufacturer of the Falcon 9, was the first commercial company ever to visit the International Space Station.

Too Many to Count

Two hundred, actually—that’s how many sheep
Einar Örn says gathered in this portrait taken in Iceland.
He reckons that the intense collective gaze meant that “they were waiting to get into a warm house after a stroll in the snow.”

A Floating Crown

Protea Banks, a reef off the eastern coast of South Africa, is home to incredible biodiversity—including this massive cephea jellyfish,
spotted by Pier.
He calls it the “biggest jellyfish I’ve ever seen.
Her purple head and yellow fuselage were simply amazing.”

Calling All Hands

Sanya captured a poignant scene in an Indian brickyard: workers balancing stacks of bricks on their heads,
and then reaching with dusty hands for still more.
“In this particular place, only women are shifting the bricks from one place to the other,” he writes,
“and the inner expression of that moment [was] captured while observing this place.”

A Vision in Green

Foamy waves, agitated by European storm Ruzica, swell around the Tévennec lighthouse in Brittany, France.
Local lore complements this moody scene—the lighthouse is believed to be haunted.
: “When we went there, the light was divine, bringing a touch of green to the magnificent Iroise [Sea] for what remains one of my favorite pictures [of] the storm.”
The image does possess a phenomenal quality, according to Your Shot photographer Mathieu Rivrin
