3 ways cats communicate
Why do cats fight?
Cats express their feelings by body language, facial expressions, and by the noises they make which makes it difficult to tell their emotions at times.
Why do cats sleep so much?
Cats sleep twice as much as humans. An average cat sleeps about 13-16 hours a day, although
it depends on their age, temperament, and size. Cats are natural predators who hunt for small
rodents, birds, and sometimes bugs. When their not hunting they spend their time taking naps.
Most cats live indoors nowadays and their owners have a big part on their sleeping pattern.
Every cat has their own sleeping schedule that they like to stick with. If a cat tends to stay up at night, play with them during the day to keep them up and active that way they can sleep at night.

Cats in small spaces
How do cats fit in small spaces?
Most house hold cats do not have anything to hunt but their instinct to hide still remains. Also, cats feel much safer and secure when their in small tight spaces.
Did you know that cats have an inner 3rd eyelid? Well, its true. Its technical name is the nictating membrane. Its sole purpose is to protect from dryness and disease.
How does a cats paw work?
Unlike humans, cats walk on their tipie toes. Because of this they are able to move quickly, agile, and quite. Their back paws are much more stronger than the front paws. Their back paws can better tolerate impacts when running and jumping. In each paw, there is a large pad in the middle, this helps absorb shocks and gives support for the leg bone.
In each paw, there are also sharp claws that are made of keratin protein and keratin dead cells. In order to keep them sharp, the claws are protected by the skin of the paw and fur.

Why do most cats hate water?
Why do cats like sun light so much?
If youve ever tried to give your cat a bath then you will probably know how they frantically try to get away and hide. Well, in some cases certain cats love to be bathed and others don't mind it. One of the main reasons cats dont like to be wet is because of their fur. If your cat has thick fur then he'll most likely be uncomfortable when he is wet. The reason for this is, when the cat is wet and their fur is soaked, it weighs them down, making it very uncomfortable. Another reason is because they may have never experienced it before. In hot weather, some cats like to soak in water to cool off.
Most people, when they look at hairless cats, they don't find them as cute as furry fuzzy puffy cats. Cats are typically silky soft furry animals that you can cuddle with. Although, some people do find hairless kitties much more adorbz than furry ones. There are different types of hairless cats. A Sphynx cat may be the first hairless cat you know. Or maybe you've heard of the name "Sphynx". A Sphynx is the most popular hairless cat. Another breed of a hairless cat is the Elf cat. This type of cat has ears that looks like an elfs, hence the name "The Elf Cat". The Ukrainian Levkoy cat has drooping ears that sort of looks like a dogs. The Bambino cat has stumpy legs, and big pointed ears. There are many other breeds of hairless cats and each have its on unique features just like cats that are furry!

Cats are desert creatures, which means they have a very high heat tolerance. The cats who can deal with cold weather are much different. They have much more thicker fur to keep heat in. Unlike cats who have thinner fur, they have to stay in the sunlight in order to keep warm. Also, when cats fall asleep their body slightly drops in temperature and that's another reason to why cats love to sleep in sunlight.
Ways cats show affection
Slow blinking - "Kitty Kisses"
Head rubbing- When cats do this they are marking you as their property.
Following- Your cat wants to be where you are because she/he is interested in you.
Gifts- When a cat brings you dead animals such as birds and mice he/she is giving you a gift and hoping you are pleased with it.
Belly- When your cat rolls over and show his/her belly to you it means he/she trusts you.
Cats have scratchy, rough tongues to groom themselves better. It also helps them to eat and drink. When cats groom themselves the little hooks on their tongues work as like a brush, unfortunately this is also how hair balls form. You can help by weekly brushing their fur.
