Understanding Cats and Their Baffling Behavior


7pm Monday NOVA: CAT TALES - Science - The perplexing behaviors of cats have often raised the question of whether humans ever really domesticated felines.



See what science has to say about the evolution of cats and their mysterious behavior.  Worshipped as a goddess, condemned as satanic, and spun into a stunning array of breeds, cats have long fascinated humans. But did we ever really domesticate them? 
Humans have looked to cats as close companions for thousands of years, but there is still a huge amount most of us don’t know about them and about how they have shaped our lives.  NOVA reveals a fascinating look at the closest relationships we have with animals.

“Cat Tales” includes interviews with scientists, geneticists, veterinarians, and even archaeologists as they trace the journey that brought the feline out of the wild and into our homes.
