Fascinating Fun Feline Facts
By Jill Anne Sparapany 

Cats make about 100 different sounds. Dogs make only 10.

On average, cats spend 2/3 of every day sleeping. That means a nine year old cat has been awake for three years of its life.

When a cat chases its prey, it keeps his head level. Dogs and humans bob their heads up and down.

The technical term for a cat’s hairball is a “bezoar.” This is a great Scrabble word!

According to Hebrew legend, Noah prayed to God for help protecting all the food stored on the ark from being eaten by rats. In reply, God made the lion sneeze and out popped a cat.

The biggest wildcat today is the Siberian Tiger. It can be more than 12 feet long (3.6 m or about the size of a small car) and weigh up to 700 lbs (317 kg).

The smallest wildcat today is the Black-footed cat. The females are less than 20 inches long (50 cm) and can weigh as little as 2.5 lbs (1.2 kg).

The most popular pedigreed cat is the Persian cat, followed by the Maine Coon and the Siamese.

Mohammed loved cats and reportedly his favorite cat, Muezza, was a tabby. Legend says that tabby cats have an “M” for Mohammed on top of their heads because he would often rest his hand on the cat’s head.
