The domestic cat is a small, usually furry, domesticated, carnivorous mammal. It is often called the house cat when kept as an indoor pet, or simply the cat when there is no need to distinguish it from other felines and felines.

The domestic cat is a small, and usually furry carnivore. It is often called the house cat when kept indoor pet, but when kept outdoors it will run wild and could end up as a wild cat.
The Eye
One of the things about cats many people love is the cat's eyes are the split shaped pupils. Only the smaller cat species have eyes like this.The bigger species like lions and tigers have round pupils.
The cat's pupils also are used to communicate: a scared cat often has very large pupils, whereas an angry cat has very thin splits.
p.s. they also glow in the dark!
The Nose
Did you know that a cat's sense of smell is fourteen times stronger than a human's? That's because its nasal organ is larger than a humans.
Cats depend on their sense of smell for their survival; it's said that a cat's nose is its most important organ.
A cat uses its nose to sniff out food, mates, enemies, and to seek out his own territory, which he has marked.
The Mouth

Kittens are born without teeth. Baby teeth begin to appear in the first two weeks. At 6 , all 26 of the kitten's baby teeth should be there. By 6 months, 30 adult teeth replace the kitten's baby teeth.
The cat's tongue has backwards-facing spines about 500 micrometers long! These spines allow cats to groom themselves by licking their fur!
"Why do cats have whiskers?
Cats use their whiskers for a lot of reasons. They provide some of the most important feedback for cats to gather information about their environment. They also use them to communicate their emotions. It is crucial to never trim them or cut them off." says petside.com
Thirty-two muscles in each ear allow directional hearing.
Most cats have straight ears pointing upwards! Flap-eared breeds are extremely rare.
When angry or frightened, a cat will lay back its ears and will growl or hiss!
The angle of cats' ears is an important cue to their mood.
cats style!

I think cats should have collars. what would happen if your cat got lost and had a collar? If someone found it they could call you or take it to the animal shelter and you might get your cat back!
bones of a cat
A cat's paw is uniquely designed to serve a cat in many ways. It enables cats to stalk silently, snatch prey, and play. It serves as a very useful sensing device. Usually cats have four toes but sometime they can have more like my cat has seven toes.
The tail
Cats have a greater sense of balance than humans, this is mostly due to the tail.
A cat uses its tail for balancing. For example, if it is walking along a narrow wall or fence and decides to look over in one direction, thereby shifting its center of gravity, it will automatically move its tail in the other direction, re-establishing its body's center of gravity and keeping it from falling off.
Cats use their tails to communicate their emotions, both to other cats and to humans.
