Some curiosities about cats


Cats in history

The fact that cats were worshiped in Egypt is universally known. But they were declared sacred and Japan around 1000, according to Cats International.

Although it is believed that the Egyptians domesticated the first cats 4,000 years ago, it was recently discovered tomb of a 9500-year-old cat. It was found in Cyprus.

In ancient Egypt, when a cat died, its owners shave their brows. Also, the kitten was mummified and placed in the family grave or a pet cemetery.

Also in the same period, cat smuggling was punished with death in Egypt. Several Phoenician traders succeeded, however, to transport them, selling them to the people rich in Athens and other cities important.

Normal cats have a goddess. This is called Bastet and is a goddess of Ancient Egypt. She has a female body and a feline head.

Cats today

In the US, cats are more popular than dogs. There live 73 million cats, unlike dogs that are in number about 63 million. Over 30% of the inhabitants have at least one cat.

The Scots built a monument in memory of the Towser cat, which caught about 30,000 mice in around alive.

While in many areas of Europe and North America it is considered that black cats bring bad luck in the UK and Australia they are considered good luck.

Isaac Newton invented the cat door. Newton was experimenting in a room where it was dark, and his cat, Spithead, kept opening the door, ruining his experiment. Thus, he invented the cat flap and both Newton and Spithead were happy.

In Japan, after cats die, cats are transformed into super-spirits. Perhaps this is because in the Buddhist religion it is said that a cat body is the temporary resting place of very spiritual people.

How does your cat look like he loves you


About a third of cat owners believe that little cats can read their thoughts.

Cat owners are healthier. They are 30-40% less likely to have a heart attack.

Cats demonstrate their affection in ways that are often not recognized by the owners as such because some people do not know for sure how their cats show their affection.

Since cats express their affection differently from humans or other animals, it is normal that we sometimes miss these precious moments. But if you ever wonder if your cat loves you, you’ll be glad to find out yes! Although her actions are strange, they are certainly no less important.


One of the nicest behaviors your cat shows. It is when it hits your head or rubs you. Not only is it cute to look at, but it is a sure sign that the cat is holding you. In fact, by this behavior, the cat leaves its pheromones on you. And informs everyone that you are her master.


Bites are generally associated with people with negative feelings, but cats are slightly different.

When your cat bites you in the play, it shows its affection.

This type of bite is very different from that of fear or defense that are meant to cause injury, and the feelings behind this reaction are also different.

The bites of “love” are a funny and strange behavior of adorable cats.

Grinding with the paws

Cats begin to “chew” since they are small kittens and are breastfed. This behavior turns into affection at maturity.

When a cat displays this type of behavior, it makes it very clear that you make her feel loved and comfortable.

“Kneading” is probably one of the most popular ways in which cats show their affection and is certainly not a myth.


The torso is one of the most outlandish ways in which cats demonstrate their affection.

However, there are times when cats cry because they do not feel comfortable, although opportunities are rare.

In general, the cat spins because she is happy around you. The more the cat spins, the better!

She follows you.

When the cat follows them everywhere, even in the toilet, many owners categorize this behavior as strange. But that just means that the cat wants to spend more time with you.

If a cat appreciates your company and feels comfortable, he will follow you around the house and stick to you. He just wants you to know that he considers you an excellent companion. If you are trying to do your homework and your cat is preventing you, she just wants to tell you that it is much more important than anything else you do and that it is time to focus on it.


Probably the least popular method among owners is to offer “gifts”. Often, cats show their affection by leaving gifts for their owners.

Cats are born hunters, so when the cat brings you freshly caught prey, it gives you a delicious meal.

You may not want to touch the gift with empty hands, but remember that her intentions are good and this behavior is a sign that she loves you.

The way cats show their affection can be confusing to their human companions, but as long as you interpret the behavior correctly, you will learn to appreciate it.

You love your cat and it is good to know that she loves you too. How and when your cat shows up, the condition will help you (both you and the cat) communicate more easily. After all, there is nothing more beautiful than knowing that you are loved.

But she loves you when she wants to. Very well she can ignore you.

Some curiosities about cats

If you want to see other curiosities, see here.

There are over 500 million domestic cats in the world and around 100 breeds are recognized.

In just seven years, a couple of cats and their descendants could produce a staggering 420,000 kittens.

A cat can run over short distances with a speed of up to 49 km / h.

From a biological point of view, the cat’s brain resembles 90% with that of the human. The brain regions responsible for emotions are identical in humans and cats. Also, cats have about 300 million neurons, as opposed to dogs that have around 160 million.

The smallest breed of cats is Singapore. This matures to 1.8 kg, while Main Coon, the largest cat breed, weighs around 11 kg.

It is said that cats have 9 lives. This is due to the flexible back and the strong muscles on the back and legs that allow most of the data to fall on your feet.

Cats sweat only through pillows. Thus, they regulate their body temperature. (more interesting things about cat pillows here)

Cats see much better in the dark than people do. But they cannot distinguish colors clearly. Scientists say cats see green as red.

A cat sleeps on average two-thirds of the time. This means that a 9-year-old cat has spent only 3 years as a wake-up call;

Cats spend a half of their time not sleeping, cleaning their fur.

Generally, cats only flock around people. In the presence of other cats, they usually just bump, lick or spit. It depends on what relationships are.

There are exceptions. See my video from another post.


Cats are fascinating and wonderful pets. But no matter how much you love them, all the time you will discover new curiosities about them. You never get bored. And I say that for over 33 years I grow and love cats. He continues to amaze me every day.

If I have convinced you, adopt a cat, you will not regret it.

And especially for men: who does not understand the soul of a cat, does not understand the soul of a woman. I didn’t say,  he said  Antoine-François Prévost, usually known simply as the Abbé Prévost.

I’d be glad to leave a comment to tell me your opinion about curiosities about cats.

I’m a big cat loving, since the young baby.   My mother was great loving cats, grandmother as well.   My daughter is coming to the end. My daughter loves cats so much that she makes a second faculty: veterinary medicine.   Four generations, what do you think?


You can now learn to comunicate directly with your cat



Health and well-being-cat

My dear, today I want to share about health and well-being when you have a cat. If you do not know, the cat is not just a cute companion. It is also a source of  health and well-being. Of course, of course. It brings you joy. And joy is beneficial for the optimal functioning of the body.

After a day of work

You get stressed and tired of work. Or just bored. You have a number of problems. Unlock the door of the house. And by wonder, all worries disappear. How? Your cat is waiting for you on the hanger. Impatient to tell how he spent the day. How did he keep the home? Your good condition is being installed. You have a more relaxed attitude. Your attention is distracted by that little creature that just wants to caress. Well, yes, and love. All the problems have gone out of charm.

Only cat owners know what a calming effect is the bruising of the fur.


Or the mole in your lap. The Japanese rub two balls in their hands to calm down. It looks like cat care has the same effect. In our hands, we have key control points on other organs. Therapists believe that through these points the energies of the meridians of the body can be controlled.

The first data on the importance of certain palm energy points dates back 4000 years ago. They were found at the tomb of Ankmahor’s doctor in Egypt.

Emotional help

The rhythm of life is increasingly stressful. Whether people realize it or not, pets help us emotionally, psychologically and socially. But not always this help is appreciated at its true value.

Specialty studies demonstrate how important this aid is to the physical and mental health of humans. The living and cheerful presence of an animal, his warm and curious look, removed the state of loneliness and sadness.

Man feels the need to be useful. Older or lonely people find a reason to care for an animal. The most comfortable and less expensive is a cat. You can play with.


Animal forces people to stay active. It needs to be fed, brushed, just to talk about the conversation. Caring for an animal is a daily activity in which routine cannot be installed.

Animals give another color and consistency to life. I tell you this because I have been growing cats for over 33 years and I never get bored.

If the others come and go, each absorbed by his life, the cat remains. She is a faithful friend, always ready to play or to have a blessing offered by her biped friend.

Families that adopted a cat said that all of her members felt happier than before. And happiness is very important for our health.

But at first, the cat owners are not fully aware of the responsibility they have taken. The joy and animation around them are felt by everyone.

About kids and cats

Children who grew up with a cat have a collection of pleasant memories. But they also learned to be more attentive, more sensitive, less selfish, more responsible.

Parents must oversee them permanently but discreetly. Know how the relationship between their child and companion flows. Starting with hygiene and ending with fulfilling the tasks to their little friend. Soon, parents will discover a more mature and understanding child.

Cats have a great influence on those they come into contact with. Regardless of age or occupation. Especially on those who live in the city. They are ruined by beneficial contact with nature.

Cats are companions, confidants, teachers, and healers of great talent, Everything depends on people adopting them and enjoying their entourage.

How are cats?

Cats are alive, warm and fluffy. Anyone who feels great comfort when holding them or kissing them. They do not judge and criticize their owner. He accepts with his defects and qualities. They trust him and help him to trust himself and others.

Cats feel when their owners are sad and abusive. Reacts amazingly to their condition, consoling them.

Cats listen with pleasure to any subject that their biped friend wants to tell him and don’t interrupt him.

Cats make people feel useful and important because they depend on them.

Gladly rejoicing at home, you will soon forget the stress of a busy day at work.

We live in an increasingly competitive world. We feel good when we play with cats. It’s a noncompetitive game, a game for the sake of the game. Fun and disconnect.

Cats drive away loneliness. Their torso calms us. They’re funny. It’s destroying us. Managing a cat is ridding the anxiety. Cats are a ZEN master who reminds us all the time to enjoy the present.

Assisted pet therapy

It is a branch of recovery medicine that uses animals to rehabilitate or cure people with special needs.

In this type of therapy, different animals are used, but I will only talk about cats.

Cats helped children


and adults become normal people. Or reach an incredible level of recovery.

The cat’s qualities were, “exploited” by doctors, helping the sick. Thus, people with the most diverse affections have benefited from this therapy. The cat communicates with the patient in a way that the doctor does not have access to. Even handicapped animals have a therapeutic role: “If a cat without a foot can go, then I can too.”

Examples of diseases in which this therapy is applied are:

Down Syndrome, mental illness, emotional problems, heart attack and especially its prevention, allergies, and obesity in infants, asthma in children, emotional support in autism. Also, lowering blood pressure, cholesterol, and triglycerides.

Researchers say the parasite that causes toxoplasmosis could be used to create vaccines against serious cancers.

Having a cat is not a fad. There are many benefits you sometimes do not realize. In addition to being lovable, they help you greatly in keeping your health and emotional balance. They help you in educating children. Some people even think that it helps you grow financially. This post is also very interesting.

My family and I are healthy. Maybe because of the heredity. But surely because of cats, we have been growing with love for over 33 years.

I invite you to leave your comments to tell me what experiences you had with cats in the health field, or you may have questions. I will respond with pleasure if I know the answer.
