AMAZING FUN CAT FACTS:

20 Surprising Fun Cat Facts - Abraham Lincoln Loved Cats! 4

    1. Cats have over 20 muscles that control their ears.

    2. A group of cats is  called clowder.

    3. Cats have more data storage than an iPad.

    4. Abraham Lincoln had four cats in the White House.

    5. Adult cats only meow to communicate with humans.

    6. Some cats are ambidextrous. Although 40 to 50% of female cats are typically right-pawed, while male cats are typically left-pawed: Psychologists Deborah Wells and Sarah Millsopp of Queen’s University Belfast tested 42 house cats — 21 males and 21 females — to determine whether they favored their right or left paws when performing tasks of varying difficulty. Their report on the results has been accepted for publication in the journal Animal Behavior of Science Direct (play with your kitties and let me know if this is true. I did it and couldn’t prove it, 🤩 but then again, I’m not a Psychologist).

    7. SO SORRY dog lovers: A cat’s cerebral cortex (the part of the brain in charge of cognitive information processing) has 300 million neurons, compared with a dog’s 160 million. (BTW,  (I love dogs too 🐶).

    8. Cats are very picky creatures about their “bathroom.” If you have more than one feline, you should have one litter box for each one of them.

    9. They are the only mammals that cannot taste sweetness (no cake for my kitty-cats on my birthday).

    10. A cat can jump six times his length in a single bound.

    11. Cats love routine. Any change in their routine makes them mad, upset. Some cats get sick, they can vomit or refuse to eat.

    12. When Cats Leave Their Poop Uncovered It’s a Sign of Aggression.

    13. Kneading is a sign of contentment and happiness. Cats knead their mothers when they are nursing to stimulate the let-down of milk.

    14. There are currently 45 Hemingway cats living at the writer’s former home in Key West, Fla.

    15. A cat’s nose is ridged with a unique pattern, just like a human fingerprint.

    16. The first cat in space was a French cat named Felicette (a.k.a. “Astrocat”) In 1963, France blasted the cat into outer space. Electrodes implanted in her brains sent neurological signals back to Earth. She survived the trip.

    17. A cat can travel at a top speed of approximately 31 mph (49 km) over a short distance.

    18. In several countries of Europe and North America black cats are a sign of bad luck, but in Britain and Australia black cats are considered lucky!

    19. Usually, a cat has about 12 whiskers on each side of its face. Have you counted them already? 😇

    20. A cat’s jaw can’t move sideways, that is why a cat can’t chew large chunks of food.

Some felines love to give us a little hard time, don’t they?

Caturday Cats for Christmas and a Poem

A Cat Named Frank – Poem by Marilyn Lott

He is a beautiful kitty cat
Frank is his name
And around the barnyard
He has risen to fame

Not only does he have
A coat so warm and soft
He’s quite the little mouser
Even up in the tall hay loft

He has a certain way
About him, it’s a fact
His personality, my friend
Changes how you react

You fall in love so quickly
When Frank comes into the room
For he takes a lot of time
Out of his busy day to groom

He keeps your heart on a string
And this you can take to the bank
When you become a victim of
A charming cat named Frank!

I adore cats

Cats are funny

Others are so happy and full of energy they like to jump high, so high that it seems they fly are flying!

There are other cats that are a little possessive, aggressive, they scratch if they don’t get their way! But my heart can’t stay away from them. I just love the little furry felines.

Rescued Kitty Cat Brings Joy to all Members of my Family

I found this beautiful kitten, abandoned, with lots of fleas, dehydrated, malnourished in the middle of a very hot  day, with a temperature of 86 to 90 degrees. But now he has a home, lots of food, a roof over his head, protection, much love and lots of humans and cats to be and play with.

I am so grateful with the universe for bringing this angel to my life. For he won’t feel hunger nor fear anymore for the rest of his life.

I Love You Little Angel

A little bit of history before fun:

My Cat tells you Happy Fourth of July 2018 Enjoy. Everybody have a great day! 22
cute kitten and the usa flag

This holiday — also known as Independence Day — commemorates the fact that in 1776, the Continental Congress, representing the 13 colonies, approved the Declaration of Independence — the first step on the road to freedom as a sovereign nation.

It seems fitting to revisit the most famous words from the document; words that have guided us since that time:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
