13 facts about cats that you did not know

Cats are probably the most mysterious creatures in the world. And if their behavior at home is usually quite understandable, the unpredictability factor still remains. Even if it seems to you that you know your cat perfectly, and you know your cat breed well, it is very likely that some facts will make you look at your pet in a new way.

1. Cats usually do not greet each other with their noses, as this puts them in a vulnerable position. However, cats who know each other well and live together for a long time, but were separated for a while, feel confident enough to touch their noses when meeting and thus confirm visual recognition and even “gather information” about what state of health a familiar cat is in, where she has been all this time and what she has been doing.

2. The famous cat’s rumble usually means contentment of life, but a low throaty rumble can signal pain experienced by a pet. If you are very close with your cat and are well able to distinguish differences in her mood and the signals she gives, you can catch this difference.

3. Kittens can purr at the age of one week and can do it on inhale and exhale for quite some time.

4. Young cats purr monotonously, while older cats purr in two or three resonant tones.

5. Scientists still do not know exactly how the purring sound is formed and why only cats can purr. But many scientists believe that the cat’s rumbling is not born in the throat, but in the cardiovascular system of the cat’s body.

6. When communicating with their kittens, cats can imitate feline “infant” language, whereas in communication with adults, they use adult vocal cues. Interestingly, in communicating with their owners, cats often use infant language.

7. Cats, like dogs, can become seriously ill and even die from chocolate.

8. Most of the time cats prefer to nap rather than sleep, that is, they are in a state of drowsiness. But when a cat really sleeps and is in a deep sleep phase, its brain produces the same waves as a sleeping person. So, it is likely that cat dreams are like human dreams.

9. When a cat accidentally meets the eyes of another cat, it blinks and narrows its eyes. To quickly make friends with an unfamiliar cat, catch her gaze, blink, and then look away.

10. Pulses in cats range from 160 to 240 beats per minute, depending on the age of the cat (the younger the cat, the faster its heart beats).

11. Cats do not understand punishment. It is much easier to achieve good behavior from a cat if it is encouraged and praised for its proper actions.

12. Daily, give the cat a piece of raw boneless meat (chicken, rabbit, beef). Chewing raw meat strengthens and heals teeth and gums in cats.

13. Cats tolerate heat very well. Especially some breeds whose ancestors originally lived in desert and hot areas.
