The Domestic or house cat is the most common and the only domesticated member of the Felidae family. These small carnivores have long fangs and sharp claws that make them highly skilled hunters. There are an estimated 100 million cats in the western world and over 100 breeds currently recognized, with that number growing annually. All current breeds of domestic cats are decedents of the Middle Eastern wild cat.
