Ten Facts You Didn't Know About Cats


6- Cat paws are crucial equipment for analyzing their environment and can move in independent groups with many tiny muscles that control them. They can detect even the smallest movements of the air, which can help in hunting small prey. Blind cats hold them forward, using them as much as the blind person uses the bucket.

7- Their ears also control much more muscle than humans have. Cats can move their ears over 180 degrees using muscles of about 30 or more, compared to only 6 for humans.

8- The cat's jaws move only up and down; no lateral movement. That means I can't grind food. I can just bang on it. This means that the so-called dental treatments or chew toys are not effective, so they need to clean their teeth regularly.

9 - Cat allergies include a skin secretion called "sebum", not hair, saliva, fur or dandruff, as many belief. So, a hairless cat is not really hypoallergenic, and such breeds need frequent bathing to control it. They also ask for more skin protection because hairless protection is not natural.

10- Cats have better hearing than dogs. Humans can hear up to 20 kilohertz, cats are at about 65 kHz, and dogs are somewhere in between, depending on breed and health.
