But the Carnivora are a clearly monophyletic group that is first known from the late Paleocene and whose primitive food habits were carnivorous.

Hunting and trapping of wild carnivores for fur, and the destruction of habitats around the world have also contributed towards bringing many carnivore species to extinction or to the brink of extinction.

The carnivores are the dominate flesh-eating mammals (Urocyon cinereoargenteus), although hunting as a way of life is shared by others such as seals and some whales.
In fact, the words Carnivora and Carnivore mean "meat-eater." But this characteristic of the group can be misleading, because a few species (such as a few bears) do not eat flesh.

 Duke University IGSP Site -- Single origin of Malagasy Carnivora from an African ancestor Nature 2003   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The Carnivora are one of only four orders of terrestrial mammals living in Madagascar today.
All four (carnivorans, primates, rodents and lipotyphlan insectivores) are placental mammals with limited means for dispersal, yet they occur on a large island that has been surrounded by a formidable oceanic barrier for at least 88 million years, predating the age of origin for any of these groups.
The mystery of the island's mammalian origins is confounded by its poor Tertiary fossil record, which leaves us with no direct means for estimating dates of initial diversification.

 The Cats (Family Felidae; Order Carnivora)
Females have between two and four pairs of mammae and in males the baculum is vestigial or absent.
Cats, with the notable exception of lions and to a lesser extent domestic cats, are habitually solitary, however they are sometimes are found in pairs (either m/m, f/f or m/f) or larger groups consisting of a single adult female and her immature young.
The archaeological evidence suggests that the cat lineage branched off from the ancestral Miacoidea (the stem group of all the Carnivora) about 45 million years ago (MYA).
