All about FUN, and a few fun facts!

This blog post is dedicated to the funny in all of us cats, especially us shelter cats. When I want a belly laugh, all I need to do is just look around at my fellow shelter cats. Whether it is Panda playing in the cat swing,

or ME Norman stealing a kiss from one of our beautiful volunteers while also checking out her nosepad (more on that later),

OR Jacob leaping to (and missing of course – haha) one of the cat trees in the shelter.

There is always something (some cat) to laugh at (I mean, laugh with). Of course I am laughing with them, not at them (at least that is what I will swear by if you ask me in front of any of them!).

Oh, and now to the facts I promised. Here are five amazing facts about us cats – plan to be amazed and amused!

  1. Every cat’s nosepad is unique, like a fingerprint.
Yes, Keylor, I know you have a very unique nosepad!

2. Cats can run 3mph faster than Usain Bolt! A domestic cat can run about 30 miles per hour; Usain Bolt averages 27 miles per hour. MEOW that is amazing!

3. Cats have more bones in their bodies than humans. Humans have 206 bones while cats have an average of 244 in their body. About 20 of these bones are in their tails for flexibility. Well, that is purrty spectacular!

Bandit is VERY flexible – must be because of all those bones. I thought it was because she practiced yoga!

4. Kittens grow when they are asleep! Their bodies release a growth hormone only when they are sleeping. So, that’s why we sleep so much! Well, actually it’s only why kittens sleep so much. The rest of us are just catnapping.

5. A cat’s MEOW is reserved to communicating with humans. Kittens do vocalize to their mamas but as adults they save the MEOWs for You humans. Aren’t you lucky. And, you didn’t think us cats could talk!

There are soooooo many more amazing facts about us cats, but I don’t want to bore you with too much purrfection today. Until we meet again dear humans.

Don’t forget to spay & neuter your cats & dogs.  There can be too much of a good thing!  There’s only so much catnip to go around. 

Cats and wildlife live longer when cats stay indoors.
