Nananananana CRAZY CAT WOMAN!!!!
So I've noticed that many-a follower/reader either has a cat or just plain digs them, so I've decided to post some fun facts all about cats wooo hooo! (Did I ever mention that I used to watch Animal Planet growing up...and that I used to take notes on it? Yes I am the epitome of nerddom.)
1.) There are 33 muscles in a cat's ear alone and can rotate each ear (independently) up to 180 degrees. They can also turn in the direction of a sound 10 times faster than even the best Fido.
2.) Cats can hear better than dogs and humans! Their hearing stops at 65 khz and humans' hearing stops at 20 khz.
3.) Cats purr at the same frequency as an idling diesel engine (26 cycles per second) !!!!
4.) Studies have shown that if a cat falls from the 7th floor of a building it is 30% less likely to survive than if it falls off the 20th floor. Apparently, it takes the cat 8 floors to process what is happening and then relax for impact.
5.) Hebrew folklore believes that cats came about because Noah was afraid that rats might eat all the food on the ark. He prayed to God for help. God responded by making the lion sneeze a giant sneeze -- and out came a little cat!
6.) Both large cats (lions and tigers) and domestic cats react to cat nip...of course there are some cats that just don't dig it.
7.) A falling cat will always right itself in a precise order. First the head will rotate, then the spine will twist and the rear legs will align, then the cat will arch its back to lessen the impact of the landing.
8.) Cats aren't nocturnal they're crepuscular which means they're more active at dawn and dusk...like a shark!
9.) A group of kittens is called a KINDLE!!!
10.) In ancient Egypt, entire families would shave their eyebrows as a sign of mourning when the family cat died
Now wasn't that just the cat's meow hehe
