Facts about Cats

Many people don’t know much about the cat. The only thing they can possibly tell you is that a cat is a four legged animal that loves milk and chasing after mice! This is a very obvious thing.

To help you get a better understanding, here are some interesting things you should know;

It’s scientifically proven that cats can actually lower a person’s blood pressure. Crazy to think about but, that’s something scientists have discovered.

Just like a human being, cats have body temperatures. Between 100.5 to 102.5 degrees F is the temperature a healthy cat should have. Anything below 100 or above 103 degrees is a sign that your cat is ill.

The jaws of a cat are designed in a very different way. They are in such a way that they can only chew up and down. They usually can’t chew sideways like dogs do!

Cats mostly learn by observation, unlike human beings. Today you go and open the fridge when your cat is watching and tomorrow, it will open it for you. They are first learners and usually keen observers!

They are the smartest animal you can have around. Their brains work so well and they are intelligent. There is no way a cat will sleep in the cold. During the night, they usually sleep beside their owners under the blanket. Isn’t that just smart?

Most cats do not like coming into contact with water. They are usually afraid of water especially when it involves large amounts of water. Strangely though, there is a cat breed that responds differently to water, the savannah cat.

Lastly, it is interesting to note that cats see the world in a totally different light! Their vision is very unique compared to that of humans. According to some experts, a cat’s color vision is usually limited to blue and grays. When it comes to night, they see things best, even when compared to humans. Most cats are actually able to see better at night than during daytime!
