    This class will explore the long and fascinating history of cats and dogs. Did you know that dogs are the world’s first domesticated animal? Or that cats probably domesticated themselves – and are still mostly wild today? We’ll study the DNA of wolves and wildcats to learn when and where our constant companions were first introduced to our homes. We’ll trace their spread across the globe through fossils and footprints. We’ll look at Egyptian mummies, Roman mosaics, Aztec temples, and Chinese tombs to see how different cultures have treated these two fascinating species. We’ll even investigate the origin of some of today’s most popular breeds – was your furry friend originally raised to hunt rats or to fit inside a royal lady’s sleeve?
