1.) A cat’s brain is 90% similar to a human’s brain (far more similar than to a dog’s brain).

2.) Cats spend approximately 70% of their lives sleeping.

3.) Female cats are usually right-pawed, while male cats are left-pawed.

4.) Cats have scent glands along their tail, forehead, chin, lips, and their front paws.

5.) Cats use their whiskers to determine if they can fit through a small space.

    our cat, Guimauve, is a real winner. she is long haired white. she expects praise when using the litter box. she is 12 years old and has never been known to do her “business” anywhere but the litter box. she wipes her feet before entering the house, we just figured she learned this from watching us. she is a fussy eater and will only eat the best cat food. she is a dear and sleeps just about anywhere she desires.

    “Cat owner”???

    I have lived with many cats… I have never owned a single one.

    I love cats forever. Since I was a small child and now I’m 53 I have cats.
    They are so sweet and they groom themselves! And they give me Lovey Eyes.
