Organs The End :) Blood Vessels Stomach The cat's stomach is designed to store large amounts of food and is a part of the digestive system. It's functions are similar to those of a human stomach. The adrenal glands in cats control many bodily functions, such as blood pressure, heart rate, and glucose level, by secreting hormones. These glands have the same function for humans. The gall bladder in both cats and humans produces bile. The kidneys remove waste products from the blood and regulate water levels in both cats and humans. The large intestine absorbs water, keeping the body hydrated in both cats and humans. The liver regulates chemicals in the blood and secretes bile in both cats and humans. Ovaries Oviducts Pancreas Small Intestine Ureter Urinary Bladder Vas Deferens Thoracic Organs Abdominal
Organs In both the human and the cat, the ureters are tubes made of smooth muscle fibers that send urine from the kidney to the urinary bladder. The urinary bladder is an organ that collects urine excreted by the kidneys before it exits through the urethra. It is found in both humans and cats. This organ is found in both the male human and cat. It's function is the transportation of sperm. Adrenal Glands Gall Bladder Kidneys Large Intestine Liver The diaphragm's major function is to control Bobcat's breathing and it also separates the abdomen from the rib cage. Diaphragm The esophagus connects the mouth and stomach to each other, so that food can travel to the stomach. Esophagus Heart The heart pumps blood that is then carried throughout the body. Lungs The lungs separate oxygen from carbon dioxide. Thymus Gland Thymus is a gland that helps to fight infections. Thyroid Gland Thyroid gland produces hormones that prove aid certain activities like metabolism. Trachea The trachea functions to carry oxygen through the bronchial tubes and into the lungs. Pericardium Pericardium is a membrane around the heart that provides protection. Watch our cat dissection video here:

It also produces and secretes hormones that are very important in the regulation of blood sugar. The small intestine has three sections: the duodenum, the jejunum, and the ileum; each carrying out the final stages in digestion. Inside, it is lined with small hairs and blood vessels that carry away nutrients to other parts of the cat's body. The ovaries contain the eggs (ova) that are waiting to be fertilized. The ovaries also produce the female hormones: estrogen and progesterone. The ovaries transmit the egg from the ovaries to the uterus and providing the necessary environment for fertilization and for initial development of the fetus.
