Okay, so it may not be accurate that cats and kittens, at least of the domestic variety of which most of us are familiar, were around in Jurassic times, however, there is evidence they have been around for a very, very, VERY long time.  In fact, several scientific studies show that as recent as (well, when compared to how old the earth is, this is comparatively recent) 5,000 years ago cats were in the early stages of domestication and additional research indicates somewhere around 10,000 years ago cats chose to hang out with us.  Wowser!
