Canela the Tabby Cat Visited us in Atwater

Lotso dogs and an occasional cat at

Canela is a good looking orange and white Tabby Cat who we saw at our Atwater clinic. All cats derive from the original African cats which migrated or were brought to the Fertile Crescent and were domesticated by the newly emerging farming communities of ancient times. Since the beginning of farming in the region, cats have been integral to the development of grain storage due to their natural predation on rodents. In contrast to the development of the wide variety of dog types, the cats which have been carried throughout the world all originated in this single area and have retained their original characteristics with very little variation. Notice Canela’s vertical slit-like pupils which are necessary for the exceptional night vision common to all cats and which since the beginning of the species has enabled their nighttime hunting prowess.- Geoffrey Antipa
