Outnumbering dogs by three to one, domestic cats are believed to be the world’s most popular pets. But unlike dogs, our feline friends aren’t fully domesticated. They’ve only lived alongside us for a relatively short period of time and still share many behaviors and traits of their wild cousins.
From tiger to tabby cat, this stunning three part series tells the definitive Story of Cats. Today there are 37 different feline species – and they exist in a wonderful variety of colors, shapes and sizes. We retrace the cats’ epic 11 million year journey – from the jungles of South East Asia to the African savannah and ultimately into our homes.
Filmed in glorious blue chip style, using the latest camera technology, we reveal how cats first arose – and what makes them such a unique and successful family of predators.
