The Back Story:

Long Haired Cats

The domestic long-haired cat has been admired around the world for several centuries, particularly for its elegant looks and rugged nature. During the 16th century, the crusaders returning from the Holy Wars, having already brought back plague and pestilence from the East, also imported the first long-haired cats into Europe.

In the mid-17th century, as the plague destroyed much of London’s population, the cat made its first steps of recovery from centuries of persecution. Despite being outlawed by the Roman Catholic Church, during this time the common people still kept cats as protectors from flea-carrying rats.
