Unlike us humans, cats are not drawn to sweets. And not because they follow the figure, but because they do not distinguish this taste.
Remember “… red, red, freckled, killed grandfather with a shovel …”. The sun marked red people with freckles. Did you know that ginger cats can also have freckles on their eyelids and around their mouths.
The fact that cats have the ability to heal a person has been heard by many. Did you know that sometimes they can heal themselves by purring. The purring of a domestic cat has a frequency of 25 to 150 hertz. This range is the frequency at which muscles and bones grow and repair best.
Cats meow to talk to us, not to each other. The only reason they meow to communicate with other felines is when the kitten signals to the mother cat.

The Cat Fanciers Association (CFA) recognizes 44 breeds.
A cat’s sense of smell is 14 times better than a human’s. Relying on smells, cats identify both people and objects.
Do cats sweat? Even if you never see it, these animals are born with an efficient cooling system. We have sweat glands located throughout the body, but in a cat only in certain places: on the paws, lips, chin and on the skin in the anus.

We do not know how proven this assumption is, but some believe that cats have a lower social IQ than dogs. But on the other hand, cats are able to solve more complex cognitive problems, if, of course, they want to. The cognitive system is a system of knowledge based on character, education, observation, reflection on the world around. In a word – a cat is a wise creature!
If your cat does not bury his feces, look at this as a sign of aggression on his part. Thus, she hints that she is not afraid of you! Again, this is theory.
Cats can drink sea water! Their kidneys are able to filter salt from water. But we cannot do this.
Another hypothesis: cats have short-term and long-term memory. This means that they can remember some non-global events and moments for up to 16 hours (for a short time). But, as a rule, cats are more selective in comparison with dogs. That is, they remember only what is beneficial to them.
