October 26, 2017-This is incredibly cool! Have you ever wondered how closely related your tabby cat is with his ancestors? I certainly have after watching some interesting behaviour of my own kitties. Now, ancient DNA connects Sabre-toothed tigers and house cats, it’s finally official. Check out the article below from our friends at Inverse.com
There are so many fascinating things about cats that many of us don’t know! Here’s a few interesting tidbits you may not have heard before…
Creme Puff was the name of the oldest cat. Creme puff lived for 38 years and 3 days with his owner in Austin, Texas. Extremely impressive!
Groups of cats are called Clutter, a Clowder and my personal favourite, a Glaring…seems appropriate:) Also, a group of wild cats is called Destruction…how awesome is that?
The smallest overall breed of cat in the entire world is Singapura, it can be as much as half of the size of an average cat. The Singapura is a short haired tabby. It doesn’t usually weigh more that 8 pounds on average, even in males!
A single female cat can have more than a hundred kittens during her productive years. This is why it is ESSENTIAL to SPAY and NEUTER!
Domestic cats share 95.6% of their DNA with TIGERS! O.M.G. Treat your house cat with the respect it rightfully deserves for being part tiger.
Most cats are lactose intolerant! They lack the enzymes that help with digestion of lactase and milk can cause diarrhea in cats. Save the milk for baby cows.
Cats sleep for 70% of their lives. WOW! Talk about conserving energy!
Cats are the MOST POPULAR pet! There are 7.9 million of them in Canada and only 5.9 million dogs! That’s why cats rule and dogs drool;)
