    Ummm. I see you scientist aren't that smart after all. Idk if you know this but the body runs on glucose. Every single cell. And the brain uses the most of that glucose. We evolved eating sugar and it's clear. If we evolved eating meat we could be omnivores by now. You're talking 1 to 2 million years of evolution and all you're talking about is meat for energy. Lol if that was all they ate they would have never survived all this time.

But I’m not sure what happens after that... ha

Australia has a real problem with feral cats.. harmless animals in Australia that have lived there for thousands of years like the koala bear and the sloth are being wiped out by feral cats. it is not known how many species of indigenous animals that have lived in Australia for thousands of years have already been wiped out by the cat ...

    Is a cat actually "domesticated"? I mean, usualy we use "domesticated" on lifeforms, that have, from one point onwards, an evolution that is controlled by humans instead of nature and by this clearly differ to the non-domesticated variant by DNA. Humans domesticated wheat/corn and fruits and vegetables, horses and sheep and goats and dogs. But cats? If cats are domesticated, then the genepool of house cats would need to be different from the genepool of wild cats. Their genepool would need to be optimized for a life alongside humans. (Like dogs genepool is. Human took a wolf and cleansed the genepool from everything he doesnt like and then he picked very rare genetical traits that he liked and made them so common that every single dog has them. THATS what is called "Domesticated". Thats totaly different from "tame". "Tame" is = the animal has LEANED to exist alongside humans. "Domesticated" means, the animals DNA was altered to perfectly exist alongside humans. Thats why one usualy warns from "tame" wild animals. BEcause their DNA is still wild, they can suddenly turn back to wild behavior. Domesticated animals should have that behavior removed from their genepool. At least mostly.

    The Spanish didn't just bring one or two stallions. They had over a hundred knights to support, and they knew they were colonists needing to breed more, so they also brought brood mares. A ship would carry 6 or 8, or even more horses, and they had lots of ships. Plus, this didn't happen only once. Read the history of Cortez' venture into Florida and across the south of North America. They reported losing dozens of horses, escaping and stolen. Columbus set up a home base for exploration on the island of Hispaniola, and in the next wave, they were definitely breeding horses there. Since it was already obvious that there were none here, they knew that horses would be a military advantage.

    What's the concept of a supposedly human induced climate change, for I never understood the idea..? The climate changes on it's own like shown here. One volcano erupts and releases more greenhouse gases than the entire humanity to this day. It's out of our control and trying to "slow it" and focusing on air temperature is pointless.
