Cats started living with people over 7,000 years ago
and still live with us today. Cats like to eat meat or fish. And they like
to drink milk. Sometimes they catch a mouse or a little bird.
Cats have very good senses: They can see well in the
dark and they hear, smell and touch very well, too. They often sleep
during the day. They prefer to hunt in the evening or at night. But they
do not like swimming.
Lions and tigers are cats, too. But they are no pets.
They are wild animals. Lions live in Africa. Tigers live in Asia.
