Got a kitty that you love?
While you probably know lots about the furry feline, we bet there are some fantastically fun and funny facts that you don’t know about.
No worries, we got your back.
Here are our top 10.
You probably never thought about a cat as being either left- or right-pawed, but over 40 percent are either lefties or righties. That means there’s quite a few out there who are ambidextrous. Luckily for them, they can probably operate the can opener with both paws.
And if they ride a skateboard—well, just look for which paw they put forward on the deck.
Cats don’t like their food too hot or too cold. They like it just right. And for them, just right is room temperature, just like their prey would be in the wild.
Well, maybe they like it a little hot then cause our cat Millie always brings in the lizards that play in the direct sun.
Maybe blood temperature is a better description.
Cats see in color, so your new plastic colored mouse in orange, purple, and yellow won’t be lost on them.
They also have fantastic night vision, and only need one-sixth of the light humans require to see. So don't worry about them in the dark, they can see just fine.
A group of kittens is called a "kindle" (yes, just like that fancy new electronic book device available now), while a group of adult cats is called a "clowder."
We all know the meow sound, whether it’s questioning, scared, happy, or imperiously demanding some vittles from the cupboard. Curiously, cats only meow at people, not at other cats. Unless they are angry, then those meows become screams.
Cats are highly intuitive creatures, and they are more than able to pick up your mood, especially from your tone of voice.
They know when you’re yelling at them (though they often don’t seem to care).
If you need your cat to calm down, try speaking to her in a soothing, loving voice. You’ll be amazed. It also helps to sprinkle so catnip in there vicinity.
Ever wonder who invented the cat door? Mr. Rogers? Nope
It was Sir Isaac Newton. Yep. Apples and cat yo.
Perhaps he was vexed by his cat wanting in and out all the time and disturbing his work, so he did something about it while sitting under the apple tree.
Cats really do land on their feet.
In fact, they all fall in the same way.
First, they rotate their head, then twist their spine around, followed by a rear leg alignment and finally they relax into it and arch the back, thus lessening their impact.
Unless you want a "clowder" of cats cluttering your home, spay and neuter your furry feline friend.
Just one pair of cats and their kittens can produce 420,000 offspring in a mere seven years.
U la la you little horny pussycat.
Like human fingerprints, cats have their own built in unique tag of telling them apart—their nose! The nose pads of cats are all uniquely ridged, meaning no two are the same.
So there you go, now you know more about your cat!
