The American domestic cat is a member of the genus Felis (from the Latin for "cat") and belongs to the family Felidae; it is one of the most widespread domestic mammals in the world. As the first animal to be domesticated, the cat shows the greatest range of variation of all domesticated species, and is a good model for understanding the processes of domestication. In addition to the domestic cat, there are many other species of wild cats. These species are sometimes referred to as "true cats", as opposed to the "domestic cats".

Genus Felis

The genus Felis (from the Latin for "cat") consists of about 10 to 15 species in the cat family. These species were all native to Africa and are divided into two subfamilies: the genus Panthera (leopards, jaguars and the like) and the genus Felina (cats and the like). The most famous of these species are the lion and the tiger. In addition to the domestic cat, there are many other species of wild cats. These species are often referred to as "true cats", as they are not domestic cats.
