Hidden Facts About Cats

Cats' whiskers are not just for show; they're highly sensitive tactile hairs that help cats navigate in low light and gauge the width of openings. They're even roughly as wide as a cat's body to aid in navigation!

While cats often purr when they're content, they also purr when they're sick or injured. This low-frequency vibration has been shown to have a therapeutic effect on both cats and humans, aiding in stress relief and even promoting healing.

Cats have exceptional senses, including night vision that's six times better than humans', excellent hearing capable of detecting ultrasonic sounds, and a keen sense of smell that rivals that of a dog.

Cats communicate not only through meows but also through a variety of body language cues, such as tail position, ear orientation, and facial expressions. Understanding these signals can provide insights into a cat's mood and intentions.

Cats are incredibly flexible, thanks to their unique skeletal structure and lack of a collarbone. They can rotate their bodies mid-air, squeeze through narrow spaces, and even twist their spines to groom hard-to-reach areas.
