Transcript of The Batty (cat)

The Cat Digestive System Order of a feline digestive system The cat's digestive system is adapted for a meat-eating hunter that may not always be successful in catching a meal, so may occasionally gorge at a large kill. His mouth construction means that a cat tears or bites at his food, then swallows it quickly, giving the salivary juices virtually no time for the preliminary breakdown of starches into blood sugars. Any starches present in the cat's diet are, therefore, of little nutritional value.
Feline gastric juices are more powerful than those of a human; they are, in fact, strong enough to soften bone. Cats can swallow large chunks of prey creatures (rodents and birds) and any parts such as feathers, hair and bones that are not quickly broken down in the stomach may be regurgitated.
In the stomach, protein is broken down into simple amino acids (basic constituents of proteins). These are then combined to form the building blocks necessary for replacement of cells throughout the cat's body. From the stomach, partly digested food passes through a valve called the pylorus to the small intestine. Further digestion changes take place, aided by secretions from the pancreas and liver. Fats are broken down and extracted, sugars are changed structurally (ready for storage) and minerals are absorbed.
From the small intestine, the now- fluid food contents pass into the large intestine, where they are acted upon by the specialized bacteria present there. Excess water is drawn off and utilized where appropriate, and the waste passes through the colon to be voided as faeces (solids) or as urine (liquid). The urinary system includes the:
urinary bladder
genital organs
The urinary system is responsible for removing waste products from blood and eliminating them as urine. The genital organs are involved in reproduction. 1. calcaneus 2. carpals
3. caudal vertebrae 4. cervical vertebrae
5. clavicle 6. costal cartilage #5
7. femur 8. fibula
9. humerus 10. hyoid apparatus
11. ilium 12. ischium
13. lumbar vertebrae 14. metacarpals
15. metatarsals 16. olecranon
17. phalanges 18. pisiform bone
19. pubis 20. radius
21. sacrum 22. scapula
23. sternebra No. 2 24. tarsals
25. thoracic vertebrae 26. tibia
27. ulna 28. xiphoid process Feline Nervous System The cat's body seems to be insensitive to different temperatures and feels less pain, and pain in different places than a humans. They can walk on ice or snow with and get no frostbite. Cats also can get pine when 'friends' human, cat, or otherwise die or depart. Reproductive System Circulatory System

A cat's heart rate can vary from 160 - 220 bpm. A cat has a circulatory system close to a human's. The have a heart, veins, arterys, and there blood transports oxygen and nutrients to the body. Thanks for watching =)
