The attitude of people to cats has changed over the centuries from love and deification (as in ancient Egypt) to hatred and extermination (as in Medieval Europe) and vice versa. Let’s pay attention to the Maine Coon, a bright representative of the feline, his Grace and agility, beauty and independence – these qualities of affectionate quadrupeds could not leave anyone indifferent.
The cat became a pet about 10 thousand years ago and already in the dwellings of primitive people, following its basic hunter’s instinct, it caught mice and other animals. They still guard houses from rodents, but nowadays cats “serve” in the British Museum, the Hermitage and several other museums and libraries around the world, protecting works of art from mice and attracting tourists.
Throughout history, cats have been friends and companions of many famous artists, artists, writers, fashion designers, inspiring them to create.
