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.
