10 Amazing facts about cats

  1. Cats can drink seawater. Unlike humans, cats have kidneys that can filter out salt and use the water content to hydrate their bodies.
  2. Cats can’t taste sweet things. Scientists believe that a mutation in a key taste receptor has prevented cats from being able to taste sugar. No cat will ever know the joy of a cupcake.
  3. The furry tufts on the inside of cats’ ears are called “ear furnishings”. They insulate the ear, and help filter out direct sounds and debris.
  4. The ridged pattern on cat’s nose is as unique as a human fingerprint. But cats can’t see directly below their noses. That’s why they miss food that’s right in front of them.
  5. By neutering a cat, you add about two to three years to its life.
  6. Most female cats are right-pawed, and most male cats favour their left paws.
  7. A female cat is called a “molly” or a “queen”. Male cats are called “toms”.
  8. Cats sweat through the pads of their paws.
  9. Cats have a third eyelid called a “haw”. It’s generally only visible when they’re unwell.
  10. Russian scientists discovered in the 1930s that Siamese kittens kept in very warm rooms didn’t develop the breed’s signature dark patches.
