International Cat Day! Meow!

Our kitties already think they are royalty, and today is a day to treat them like it! Go grab the tuna!

August 8th is International Cat Day! So grab your fuzzy little baby and go take a cat nap, or cuddle up with these cute cat facts.

  1. A group of kittens is called a “kindle”, and “clowder” is a term that refers to a group of adult cats.
  2. Cats have over 100 sounds in their vocal repertoire, while dogs only have 10. A cat’s meow is usually not directed at another cat, but at a human. To communicate with other cats, they will usually hiss, purr and spit.
  3. Cats have the cognitive ability to sense a human’s feelings and overall mood.
  4. A cat can reach up to five times its own height per jump.
  5. In one litter of kittens, there could be multiple “father” cats.
  6. Cats can be lefties and righties, just like us. More than forty percent of them are, leaving some ambidextrous.
  7. Cats do not like anything citrus and cannot taste sweet things.
  8. Cats sleep 16 hours of any given day.
  9. A third of cats’ time spent awake is usually spent cleaning themselves.
  10. In North America, cats are a more popular pet than dogs. Nearly 73 million cats and 63 million dogs are kept as household pets.

Cats are awesome creatures and there are a lot of interesting things about them.

How are you celebrating
