Abstract: A cat skeleton from a Predynastic burial in Egypt that was previously labelled as Felis silvestris is reidentified as Felis chaus. This means that the previous claim needs to be withdrawn that the specimen represents early evidence for taming of Felis silvestris that ultimately led to domestication. However, the statement that the small felid has been held in captivity for several weeks, based on the presence of healed fractures, is still valid. (c) 2008 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
