Cat Facts

We all know cats are amazing creatures, full of quirky habits that keep us entertained and baffled at the best of times. Here are some interesting facts about cats that you may not have known.

More than 100 vocal sounds

Cats have more than one hundred vocal sounds, while dogs only have about ten.

No collarbone!

Cats do not have a collarbone, which allows them to fit through any opening the size of their head.

No meowing to cats!

Meowing is reserved for humans. A cat will almost never meow at another cat.

Running at 31 mph

A frightened cat can run at speeds of up to 31 mph, slightly faster than a human sprinter.

Field of vision not below nose

Their field of vision doesn’t extend directly below their nose, that’s why it’s sometimes hard for cats to find tit-bits on the floor.

Cat groups

A group of cats is called a clowder.

Humans are big cats

Cats do not see themselves as little people but see us as big cats. This influences their behaviour.

Left or right pawed cats

Like humans, cats can be either left or right-pawed.

Cats remember longer than dogs

Studies have shown that cats have better memories than dogs. A dog’s memory lasts 5 minutes while a cat’s memory lasts up to 16 hours!

Cat purr cycles

Cats purr at 26 cycles per second, this is the same pace as an idling diesel engine.
