Ten Facts You Didn't Know About Cats

While in the US, cats are considered to be a majority-owned pet, dogs still attract more attention from their owners. This could be attributed to the fact that most people don't know much about cats, so they have no idea what attention they need. Cats are considered separate and independent, so they need less attention. Cats can take care of themselves in a way dogs cannot, but that does not mean they like to be left alone.

1- They need as much attention as dogs. Cats are emotionally sensitive and need socializing. If we neglect them, they learn to be distant, but they will rather be kind.

2- Cats can be trained to do many things, including walking on a leash, "talking", praying, sitting, lying down, etc. It just takes different training methods and a lot of patience.

3- The average life expectancy is about 15 years, but with good care, it can be much longer. Stray animals may be able to survive two years in difficult environments, but a well-groomed cat can easily reach 20 years.

4- Fossil records have shown that cats are over 35 million years old without much change in shape or behavior.

5- As long as space or opening is not smaller than their heads, cats can slip through them because their skeletal structure is narrow on the shoulders and the clavicles and blades (which give people broad shoulders) are very narrow and rotate easily. It is wrong to say that cats do not have blades.

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.
