Ok -- no, dogs did not domesticate themselves.

I think they just heard the podcast that said that cats were the only animals that did.

So they came out with new theories about dogs!

We bred them down from wolves. So while cats look almost exactly the same as cats from ages ago -- dogs have obviously had a lot of changes.

So there! ;P

(by the way, I did try to find the radio show that had all the cat domesticating themselves info (it really was quite fascinating) but I couldn't remember where I heard it and couldn't find it again. :( )

Cat, but did they? I mean, there are theories that dogs did, too. Regardless, very nice image. Love the stark contrast between the cat and the background, and that curvy tail tip adds interest.
