You call your beloved cat to have his dinner. Sir Scratchy! Suddenly, you hear loud stomping. The dishes on the dinner table clink with every thump. A painting’s fallen off the wall! Is it an earthquake? No, that’s a cat the size of a pony walking into the dining room! It needs ten times as much food as the average cat. And it purrs like a tractor! No, Scratchy, stop rolling, you’ll turn over the cupboard! Well, this is one possible scenario for the evolution of animals in the future. Climate, water, oxygen in the air, and even gravity are factors that influence the course of evolution. For example, scientists predict that some bird species will gradually lose their warm feathers. In the future, they will basically look like sphinx cats with beaks and wings. The same thing might happen to our pets. Gradually, their fur will become shorter until they’re completely bald.

Ah, evolution, it’s a funny thing. For us, it’s hard to imagine the prehistoric world, so different from what we know, along with the strange creatures that inhabited it. For example, in the Cambrian period, the ocean was shallow and the sun never set. Every day was Sunday morning and there was never any darkness. Animals had just invented eating each other, and having eyeballs was all the rage. Thinking that our cats and dogs descended from those guys is mind-boggling at best.
