I have received this question during a recent discussion about pet birds and cats. We know that birds evolved from the dinosaurs before the mass extinction that happened about 66 million years ago.
However, I could not find such clear information about the most prolific creature on the Internet.
I am interested in filling the gap between the mass extinction and Felis attica to have an answer for my question, but I cannot find an article diving even further in cats history.
Question: What did (domestic) cats evolve from?
