- Cats communicate by meowing, purring, hissing, growling, squeaking, chiring, clicking, and grunting.
- Cats weigh from 5.5 to 16 pounds.
- The hobby of breeding and showing cats is called “Cat Fancy.”
- Domestic cats, especially young kittens, are known for their love of play.
- Cats can have three to five kittens in each litter.
- Cats are known for their cleanliness and grooming themselves by licking their fur.
- As cats groom themselves by licking themselves clean, they tend to get hair building up in their intestines. These hairballs are also known as trichobezoar, and in order to get rid of the blockage, the cat must vomit the hairball up. Most hair however will simply pass through the cat’s digestive system with no problem.
- A group of more than two cats is called “clowder.”
- A cat’s hearing is said to be better than a dog’s, and they can hear high-frequency sounds up to two octaves higher than humans are able to hear.
- The biggest wild cat alive today is the Siberian Tiger. It can be more than 12 feet (3.6 m) long (about the size of a small car) and weigh up to 700 pounds (317 kg).
- On average, cats spend 2/3 of every day sleeping, which means a nine-year-old cat has been awake for only three years of its life.
- A cat almost never meows at another cat. It is thought that they developed this means of communication specifically for humans as they will typically only spit, purr, and hiss at other cats.
- Aoshima Island is one of about a dozen “cat islands” around Japan – small places where there are significantly more feline residents than people.
- Cats don’t have sweat glands like humans do – instead they sweat only through their paws.
