Well, since you claim that larger cats can't be domesticated, while other, smaller felines can, I find it quite amusing that you say my arguments lack any basis in fact.
Fact is, those "musts" of what make an animal domesticable only really apply to animals used for labor and slaughter, they only talk about what makes it EASIER to domesticate an animal, and they don't apply to modern times.

Did those old African kings have access to a large amount of cheetahs? Seeing as how the animal is so fast, powerful, sought after for its fur, etc., I think it's likely that if they were hunting for cheetahs, they weren't often fortunate, and if they were, they'd use them for their fur, and not to bring back to their town alive. Since they apparently weren't so useful for hunting as they hoped, it's also likely that they gave up after a while, since the process of domestication was so much more tedious back then.
Did the old Africans have artificial insemination? Nope. Do we today? Yes, which is partially why we most likely could do it today.

But let's just agree to disagree. You think my arguments lack basis, and I think the same of yours.

That's likely partially because of lack of resources and a lack of need, since dogs are generally more useful and can still outrun most people.
With modern methods, it should work. Especially in the future, when we've further developed genetic modification.
#81 - bobbysnobby (03/07/2014) [-]
Neither of those are true. Major African Kings had huge collections of trained and tamed cheetas used for hunting.

They had the desire and they were the people with the capabilities to domesticate other animals and plants. I think that your claim is a unsubstantiated assumption with no basis in fact.

I read the reasons, and all of them were flawed and didn't indicate any kind of impossibility of domestication, just meaning that it would be more difficult to do so naturally.
"Can't be picky eaters" - in the process of domestication, we first cater to their needs and then alter their tastes so we can give them pet food. Not very difficult.
"Must reach adulthood quickly" - big cats do, but even so, it's not necessary when just wanting a pet. It's only a problem when wanting them for labor and slaughter.
"Must be willing to breed in captivity" - Depends on so many things, and I doubt this was the case for even cats and dogs when they were being domesticated for thousands of years. Besides, there's artificial insemination nowadays, which is used all the time on animals such as horses and cattle.
"Must be docile by nature" - Completely false. Wolves and cats were never docile before people started domesticating them, and apparently not many people agree with this point. The temprament of small wild cats isn't different from their larger cousins.
"Can't have strong tendencies to flee when scared" - Big cats tend to try and scare away the one making them scared. And again, artificial insemination and effective, large areas of enclosure would prevent it from being too much of a problem.

So, eh, I'll keep hoping.
