Three thousand years ago in Egypt, they were worshiped as deities. And they still remember him, will confirm every cat farmer.

There are glands in the cat's mouth which give a specific smell. When it's rubbed at your feet, it marks you.

The nose of each cat is unique like fingerprints in humans.

Most cats spend about 65 percent of their lives in sleep or nap.

The unique ability of cats to find their way home is proven. It's still not clear what she owes. They are thought to feel the magnetic field as if they had a built-in compass in their brains.

Cats have an average of 12 whiskers on each side of the muzzle. At the base of the mustache there are sensitive nerve endings that help the animal to judge the distances between the objects. Without whiskers, the movements of the cat become hesitant and confused.
