The Domestic Turkey and the First Thanksgiving

10,000 Birds

The domestic cat has the uninspired name Felis catus in some circles, or otherwise, Felis silvestris while the wild version (not the feral version, but the wild cat that lives in Africa today) was once known by a Latin binomial that is no longer polite to say, for a while as Felix lybica , and now, owing to the trend of reconflating wild and domestic forms when they are known to interbreed, as Felis silvestris lybica.
