Archaeologists have found /the earliest known evidence /of a
special connection / between humans and cats. Last month in
Cyprus they discovered the grave of a 30-year-old villager who
died 9,500 years ago. With the body, they found jewelry,
seashells, and other items. Less than a meter (3 feet) away, in
another grave almost certainly made at the same time, lay the
bones of a young cat.
Cat bones have been found before near early human settlements,
but scientists believe they belonged to wild cats. These cats
probably stayed around human villages to catch the mice and rats
attracted by the supplies of food.

It is a commonplace among moralists that you cannot get happiness by pursuing it. This is only true if you pursue it unwisely. Gamblers at Monte Carlo are pursuing money, and most of them lose it instead, but there are other ways of pursuing money which often succeed. So it is with happiness. If you pursue it by means of drink, you are forgetting the hang-over. Epicurus pursued it by living only in congenial society and eating only dry bread, supplemented by a little cheese on feast days. His method proved successful in his case, but he was a valetudinarian, and most people would need something more vigorous. For most people, the pursuit of happiness, unless supplemented in various ways, is too abstract and theoretical to be adequate as a personal rule of life. But I think that whatever personal rule of life you may choose it should not, except in rare and heroic cases, be incompatible with happiness.
