Interesting facts about our furry friends that everyone can observe from their pet. In this post, we provide answers to some of the most popular questions. Start watching and get a charge of positive emotions.
What does it mean to be a cat?
Let’s start with how and what the cat sees when it leaves the house for a walk. If you didn’t know yet, a cat does not distinguish all the colours that a person can distinguish. Her favourite colours are blue and green. In addition, she sees more shades of grey. Although, perhaps, less than 50. And the fact that cats see in continuous darkness is a myth. To see, they need at least a faint light source.
Cats are incorrigible egoists. Or is it slander?
Dog owners love to contrast their favourite pets with cats. Compared to dogs, they are, they say, hardened egoists, they only need to devour from a person.
Yes, cats do not care about your flower bed, and they can only consider flowers in a pot on the windowsill as an object of valiant fun – to dig, gnaw, scatter.
But then how to interpret the habit of domestic cats to bring gifts to their owners (decapitated mice, bunnies, birds, chipmunks, etc.)? In general, with cats, everything is not so simple.
Is it important for cats to know the mood of their owners?
With cats, at least one thing we know for sure: people have a special liking for cats. But how cats relate to people is not entirely clear.
Compared to dogs so devoted to us, cats seem rather indifferent, as if they do not care about human affairs at all. But, as you may have guessed, this is not true. Cats just know how to hide their feelings.
Why we think cats are unfriendly and arrogant
We continue to expose the seeming self-centeredness of the cats. Outwardly – especially in comparison with dogs, which rejoice like crazy at any sign of attention from the owner – cats are very arrogant. It seems that they are sick of the very idea that they can have a master at all. No, of course, they are the owners.
Therefore, it often seems to us that it is much more difficult to make friends with cats than with dogs. But maybe we just don’t understand them?
Why do cats live on their own and not in a pack?
Here is another interesting article about single cats who prefer to walk by themselves. Why are they, in fact, on their own? After all, it would seem that life in a pack has a lot of advantages (the article lists these advantages in great detail).
And yet, among felines, only lions prefer to live in a pack. Cats are not like that. Even stray, courtyard cats living in basements do not stray into a flock. Yes, they have communities, but they are fickle, and, in fact, they are not a group – cats simply divide the territory in which they raise their offspring.
However, as scientists say, all this is gradually starting to change. After all, cats are also lions, only small ones.
Why are cats so fond of ruining Christmas trees?
And here’s another question that can be compared in popularity to such as “is there life on Mars?” The relationship between cats and Christmas trees is as old as the habit of decorating a Christmas tree for the New Year. In a word, this is a serious question and requires thoughtful analysis.
