Cats are such amazing creatures, even if they do treat us humans like their slaves! Here are some cute facts you might not have realised about them…

1: Drink Sea Water

Unlike humans, cats have kidneys that can filter out salt. That means that they can drink sea water to hydrate themselves.

2: No Sweet Tooth

Cats will never be able to experience the joy of chocolate because their taste receptors do not register sweet flavours.

3: Dolphin Talk

In theory a cat and a dolphin could have a conversation as cats can hear the ultrasonic noises that dolphins use to communicate.

4: Nose Print

The pattern on a cat’s nose is as unique as a human fingerprint. They also can’t see directly below their noses, so they might miss food right in front of them.

5: Sleepy Time

An adult cat sleeps so much that by the time it reaches 9 years of age, it will have slept for 6 of those years.

6: Sweaty Feet

Cats quite literally get sweaty feet as they only sweat out of the pads on their paws.

7: Vocal Range

Cats can make over 100 vocal sounds. The more you talk to them, the more they will ‘talk’ back.
