Types of Cats
Domestic cats can be short or long haired and they can have many different colours and patterns on their coats. Above is a ginger cat.
Big Cats & Wild Cats
You can find out about different types of big cats and wildcats *here*
Here are a few cat facts that I found interesting.
- Every cat’s nosepad has a distinct ridged pattern. Just like a human’s finger print, each cat’s nosepad is unique.
- Cats can jump more than 5 times their own height in a single bound.
- Cats can run faster than people. I read that an average domestic cat can run at speeds of 30 miles per hour that's over 48km per hour!
- Apparently cats can make about 100 different sounds.
- Just like children, kittens lose their baby teeth.
- The tufts of hair in cats ears are called 'ear furnishings'. Ear furnishings help to keep dirt out, direct sound and also insulate the cat's ear.
