Take a look at your cat, it has 5 toes on its front feet and only 4 on its back feet!
Cats have no sweet buds on their tongue, so when cats eat sweets or foods that taste sweet, they cannot perceive the taste. When you hand them candy and see them licking, it’s because the smell of the candy but not the taste.
A cat’s ear can hear high-frequency sounds at the ultrasonic level, which are frequencies that humans cannot perceive. Rodents such as mice use the same frequency of sound to communicate, and that’s why cats know where mice live and can easily catch it.
Cats can only remember what happened in the past 16 hours, and after 16 hours they will forget and remember nothing. But they all have better memory than dogs, because dogs only have a 5-minute memory.
Some people’s allergic reactions to cats or allergies to cat fur are not actually caused by cat fur, but because of the hormones in the saliva on the hair. When cats lick their fur to clean themselves, this hormone stays on its fur and body, and people allergic to this hormone can cause allergic reactions when they touch the cat’s body or the cat’s fur.
