Cats imitate baby humans whenever they want you to feed them. Hungry cats emit a vocalized, high-frequency purr that’s in the same acoustic range as the cries of a hungry infant, and humans subconsciously recognize it as being more urgent than other purrs.
The little slits on the outside of a cat’s ears are called “Henry’s Pocket,” and no one is quite sure why they’re there.
‘Werewolf’ cats exist…And you can own one. Meet Lykoi
Lykoi have a naturally occurring mutation of the domestic short-hair cat, meaning that they originated in wild cat populations. They’re born with a full coat of hair like most cats, but lose some as they grow older, giving them that patchy, werewolf-like hair pattern.
A crowdfunding campaign raised over £20,000 (US$26,000) to replace all adverts in a London Underground station with pictures of cats.
Studies show that cats understand human commands but don’t care to follow them.
All mammals weighing more than 2.2 pounds take roughly 20 seconds to empty their bladders. That includes everything from domestic cats to elephants—and an elephant’s bladder holds several bathtubs worth of urine.
Humans have better eyesight in the daylight than cats do, but cats are able to see much more in settings where humans would be almost completely in the dark. Cats also have better peripheral vision, but don’t see as well when up close or far away.
One reason cats bury poop is to avoid disputes. Dominant cats poop out in the open to claim authority, while others bury theirs to avoid problems. If your cat doesn’t bury it, it may be a sign of illness, or it might just be telling you who’s in charge.
A cat named Tibbles once started bringing dead
to a lighthouse that were discovered to be a new species, the Stephens Island wren. They went extinct shortly after and Tibbles the cat was accused of being the only single living creature to eradicate a species.
In 2012, a stray cat entered the home of a blind dog called Terfel and became his seeing-eye guide. Confined to his basket so he didn’t bump into things, the cat sensed Terfel’s disability and began using his paws to gently lead him around the house; he even assisted for trips to the local park. source
