Your Cat cannot taste things that are sweet...
The taste buds of a cat cannot detect sugar.

Originally kitty litter was made of sand, but in 1948 it was discovered that clay was more absorbent.

Your cat can see in the dark.
Cats can see at one-sixth the light level require for human vision....

Without Taurine, your cat would go blind.

Taurine is an amino acid that most animals produce on their own.
However cats require it in their diet.  Do not worry it is in your cat's food.

Taurine is also an ingredient in most energy drinks.
But this does not mean you should ever vie these to your cat!

Things Worth Knowing About Your Cat!!

Your cat purrs continuously....
by flowing air past the voice box during both inhalation and exhalation.

Your cat's whiskers to gauge whether or not they can fit though an opening. 
Furthermore, your cat's collarbone does not connect to any other bones but instead sits
buried in muscle.

This makes it easier for your cat to squeeze through tight spaces.  

Your cat purrs at the same frequency as an idling diesel engine.
This is around 26 purrs per second.
