These 6 facts about cats will surprise you!

Loyal, intelligent, and cuddly. Cats are wonderful little companions that are always there for us when we need them. But did you know your purrrfect feline buddy has tons of qualities about them that make them unique and ameowzing? Keep reading to learn these 6 facts about cats that will surprise you!

Scent-marking

Your cat rubbing their little head against you is not only a sign of affection but they’re also scent-marking you using their scent glands found around their face, paws, and base of their tails. 

Genetic Mutations

Did you know that your kitty can’t taste sweetness? It’s true! Scientists believe that cats have a genetic mutation that affects their taste receptors which makes them unable to taste sweetness. 

Cats meow exclusively to humans as a way to communicate.

Why Don’t Cats Meow At Each Other?

When they’re itty bitty, kittens meow at their mothers to let them know that they’re hungry or cold. However, as cats grow older, they no longer meow at other cats and instead use “cat language” to communicate with others (mostly just using scent, facial expression, body language, and touch). So why do cats meow at humans? Because they have to communicate with us somehow and “cat language” doesn’t work on us!

Unique Organs

Ever notice your kitty’s mouth slightly open as if they’re tasting the air? Well, they are and it’s called the Flehmen response! Cats have an extra organ called the Vomeronasal organ (or Jacobson organ) that allows them to detect subtle chemical markers called pheromones in the air. 

So Many Kittens

One female cat is able to have near 49,000 kittens in a span of just 10 years. Another very good reason to always spay and neuter your kitties!

Happiest Place On Earth

Did you know that Disneyland isn’t only the happiest place on earth for us humans, but for kitties too? There are currently approximately 200 feral cats roaming Disneyland because they help to control the rodent population on the grounds. These kitties are all spayed or neutered and they get lots of food and medical care from the park staff!
