The domestication of the grey wolf, from which the dog descends, took place roughly 15,000 years ago in central Asia. The cat has been domesticated for for at least 9,…500 years, and a 2007 study suggests they descend not from Egypt as is commonly believed but from a type of African wildcat. The first written reference to mice kept as pets occurs in the the oldest extant Chinese dictionary, from a mention in an 1100BC version, which is a little more than 3,000 years ago. However, breeding of the modern fancy mouse, as we know it, was not popular in Europe until the 17th Century. Therefore the dog was domesticated first, then the cat, and finally the mouse.

a domesticated animal is one that has lived in the wild and taken in to be cared for by a human. Some are released and some stay domesticated. That would be a "tam…ed" animal. A domesticated animal is a species that is bred and kept by humans as pets, labor, or food. Centuries of breeding have removed their "wildness" and many would not survive without human care.

Many cultures explain the way dogs came to be man's best friend. One religion says that man one day went looking for fruit to eat, as man hadn't yet learned to hunt. The man c…ouldn't find any fruit because of the big floods, so went looking for items to hunt the animals of the forest with. The man couldn't catch the birds, the monkeys and the wild cats very well, so hunted fish. He caught so many. The God got angry because all the fish were nearly gone. God decided to turn some fish into dogs to help Man kill all the animals to keep them even. While the man returned to catch fish, the dog had caught a monkey at his feet and gave it to the man. The scientific way dogs were the first domestic animal because they were great at hunting and had great noses to smell with. The cave men found dogs and saw they caught well, so tried to tame dogs to hunt for the cave men. Since the dogs where very wild back then, it took a while. A least one cave man kept a dog as a pet and handed down the idea from generation to generation, and look what's happened now!
