For weeks now Daddy has been digging into my computer time with his genealogy activities, but my feelings about this were easily taken care of with a simple bribe.
What can I say?
I love belly rubs, so sue me! ;-D
But Daddy couldn't hog the Computer forever!
I have to host the latest Carnival of the Cats tomorrow, afterall. ;-D
So what is this thing called Genealogy?
For all you Cats who don't know I did some research!
According to the Merriam Webster Collegiate Dictionary this is the definition:
1. An Account of the descent of a person, family, or group from an ancestor or from older forms.
2. Regular descent of a person, family, or group of organisms from a progenitor or older form.
3. An account of the origin and historical developement of something.
According to The Oxford Dictionary of Word Histories "Genealogy" has "Middle English" origins: "This came via Old French and late Latin, from the Greek word "Genealogia", from genea 'race, generation' and -logia 'speaking, discourse'.
This all got me to thinking...Cats...that means me, you dear reader, the stray in the alley down the street...we are all organisms.
A "Something" that developed over centuries, from a much, much earlier "Something".
So I went Googling!
I did a search for "Cat Genealogy", and came up with some interesting stuff. ;-D
