What is the difference between modern cats and cats 200-300 years ago? Is it true that pets evolve in their own way?

If man has not interfered in the selection of cats (people like to breed new breeds, mainly dogs), then today's common "backyard" Cats are no different than the cats of three hundred years ago. Three centuries is a very short time for natural evolution. Man's crossing of different breeds of cats is an artificial evolution.
