The second cat-raising country was probably Palestinian, because at that time Palestinian had a trading relationship with Egypt. Specifically, the country now has an ivory statue carved with a cat lying. This statue is about 1,700 years BC.
But cats were only popular to other places around the 5th century BC, ie the period of Egypt’s relationship with Greece and Rome. Greek merchants secretly brought some cats home and today in Athens there is a marble carved with a dog and a cat biting each other. This temple was built about 480 BC. But cats only developed much in Europe during the Roman Empire period. An ancient coin in southern Italy about 440 BC was engraved with the cat and by Christan (around 200 AD) cats became familiar animals, including England in the middle of the sea. Here, perhaps African-speaking Egyptian cats are crossbred with European wildcats, thus featuring the two species.
