Thoughtful Tuesday!

Mes has been thinking about us cats and mes come up with some great stuff!!!
The QUESTION is at the top of the picture and the answer is after 
(gosh mes misses the slideshow widget in Wordpress)


 Cats rule, but not by much! There are about 105.6 million cats compared to about 91.3 million dogs in the US and Canada.
Us cats live about 14-16 years so plan on taking care of us for a LONG time!




Us cats has floating collar bones, that means our heads is about the largest part of our bodies (though our tummies can get bigger). So, if our head fits through a tight space, usually the rest of us will too!! Ask Mommy about the sun roof in the car.....





b-810 years!
Wes catnaps about 12 to 16 hours a day! Like peoples we has 3 different types of sleep and during REM sleep, yous can see our whiskers twitch, or ears and eyes and legs move!!!!



 

Like dogs, chocolate is toxic to us cats!!!
It can cause heart problems, increase blood pressure, and cause seizures! 
Mes sticking to cat treats (right now mt purrsonal favorite is freeze dried salmon!)








Just like peoples and dogs and horses, wes can bes lefties or righties (mes a rightie)
Some research peoples watched us and which paw wes reached for our food (or toys) with!
About half (50%) reached with their right, 40% with their left and 10% is anbidexterous!!!




The LAST Question!!!


Nope! Meowing is what we use to talks to humans. We talks to each other with purrs, hisses, screeches and shrieking!!! We also use body language, and sent things and wes even been known to bes like our wild relatives and scratch wood (Mes prefers sofas.....)

And those are my thoughts for the day. Does yous have a cat fact mes did not talks about that yous would like to share? Inquiring minds like to knows!!!

Kisses
Nellie

 Mommy has mad a zillion pin cushions (ahem...only 5). 
This one is supposed to bes of me!

  13. I like these cat factoids. Or catoids.
    When it comes to treats, Mickey Mouser is right pawed and Rufus the Red uses both. At the same time.

  14. The pin cushion is very nearly as adorable as you, Nellie. My mum thinks I sleep for 23 1/2 hours a day but she always exaggerates.

  15. We love all these catoids!! And the pin cushion is adorable!!! My auntie says cats of different color smell differently which is why if you want to add a new cat to your household you should pick one of the same color as the one already living there. I don't know about that. I'm the only orange one in my house and I tend to get along with everyone else - who is black, black and white, or grey and white. Love you! Toby

  19. Nellie, those are some mighty good facts. We didn't know about the lefty, righty deal so now the Mom is going to watch all of us. That in cushion is terrific. Also, I don't think there should be a contest between cats and dogs, they are both terrific.
