Rodent control was the reason cats were put on ships. All trading nations adopted this practice. It is believed that cats arrived in Europe by boat from Ancient Phoenicia (maritime trading cultures on the African coast of the Mediterranean). They set their paws down on European soil in about 900 BC.
