Got a kitty that you love?
I bet you didn't know these 5 things about your furry friend.
Let me tell you 5 fun-tastic things that you didn't know about your cat.
Take a close look at your cat’s nose.
You will notice little bumps and ridges. These prints are exclusive to each feline and can be used for identification. Who'd thought that just like us our furry babies have unique identifiers just like us with our fingerprints.
Cats do have a paw preference, just like humans.
Researchers have conducted several studies regarding cat paw preferences and report different numbers of right and left-pawed cats.
Some studies suggest up to 39 percent of cats prefer their right paw and and 28.3 percent prefer the left.
Now, do you know if your cat is righty or lefty?
Furthermore, they are also called: Cludder, Clutter, Colony, Glaring (this is usually used when cats don’t know each other) & Pounce.
Like dogs, cats are covered in fur and have comparatively few sweat glands through their bodies. And most of them are on the pads of their paws.
Ever wonder why you’ll sometimes see little wet paw prints when these little furball walks on tile or linoleum during a hot weather?
Unlike humans cats cannot taste sweets the same way we do.
However, they may be able to taste things that we can’t, such as adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the compound that provides energy in cells.
This is a signal for meat, which wild cats basically live on. Yet, many cat food manufacturers include sugars in cats’ meals.
But, cats are not used to consuming so much sugar, which is why diabetes in cats may be increasing.
