Get to know the world of cats and the characteristics that make felines animals full of curiosities
Not long ago, dogs were considered the top pets by most pet owners, however, over the last decade, the world of cats is increasingly present in the lives of busy families who can enjoy the company of a feline friend without having as many worries as with other types of animal.
Although they are involved in varied and well-known myths, such as the claim that they have seven lives, cats need periodic visits to the veterinarian like all animals for their health to be guaranteed. This is an important fact to emphasize, since in most cases, cat owners end up not paying much attention to their health because they believe that the independence of the animal is synonymous with constant well-being.
Among some of the most interesting facts about the life of cats is the amount of bones present in your body, which adds 245 (39 more than in a human body); and the super hearing that the felines have. Contrary to the belief that dogs are the animals with the best sense of hearing, the cats' ears perform better, and can hear up to 65 kilohertz while the dogs reach up to 45 hz.
The sight is another curious aspect in the world of cats, with a feline seeing up to six times better than a human at night, since it needs only one-sixth of the illumination that men need to see clearly. Capable of jumping up to five times their own height, felines always fall to their feet when there is a minimum of time to catch up and dampen the fall, a fact that contributes to the well-known legend of the seven lives.
To clarify the myth and direct the attention of the owners to the necessary care with the cats, we quote that the life expectancy of a feline of street is of about three years, that this number goes up until 16 years when the pussy is created inside the house by its owner, and there are records of cats that have lived more than two decades.
Another curiosity about the world of cats is their agility and balance, which is due to the greater development of their cerebellum, which in the animal world is one of the largest proportionally.
