Cats are animals who are quite close to the humans. But their independent nature proves that notwithstanding thousands of years of their domesticity cats have remained free and untamed; their tolerance towards humans can be seen as their favour for us.
Apart from usual cats that live close to humans, there are many other representatives of cats. That's why people visit Zoos. They want to see representatives of any continents in one place.
