Fun facts from Cats

A “Calico” (the three colored shade) cat is independent of the breed and it’s almost always a female (pigmentation is linked to the X chromosome). Male calicos are sterile and die early.

Let’s face it, it is not a blog about random facts if we don’t toss in the cats!

–       Cats were worshiped in Egypt and in some cases mummified

–       Cats cannot taste sweet, therefore not impressed with cupcakes

–       Isaac Newton invented the cat door

–       Cats can see at 1/6 of light that humans need to see in the dark

–       Cats pur at the same frequency as an idling diesel engine

–       Cat can run 30 miles an hour (Usain bolt goes 27 mph and a cheetah goes 75mph)
