The domestic cat was named Felis catus by Carolus Linnaeus in his 1758 Systema Naturae. Johann Christian Daniel von Schreber named the wildcat Felis silvestris in 1775. The domestic cat is now considered a subspecies of the wildcat: hence the strict precedence of the International Code of Animal Naming of the species name. This must be F. catus because Linnaeus’s books were published first. In practice, however, almost all biologists use F. silvestris for wild species, and F. catus for domesticated species only.
