Fun Facts About Cats for Kids

Hey guys and gals!¬† What’s going on? Do you have cats at home? I hope so because I’m¬†talking about cats today. Ready. Let’s jump in.

Back to cats.

  • Do you have a sweet tooth? That’s amazing!  Cats cannot tell if something is sweet or not!
  • Does your cat have freckles around its eyelids and mouth? Ginger tabby cats have freckles. My Daisy didn’t have them.
  • When a cat gets injured, it can heal itself by purring. Its bones and muscles can repair themselves.
  • Cats aren’t good communicators like birds. When they meow, it’s either they’re talking to us, or the kittens are around their mother.
  • I used to think that cats loved milk. And so, I would give Daisy some milk because of adverts or pictures of cats drinking milk. However, I’ve learned that cats are enemies of milk. Do you give your cat milk?
  • How long do you think a cat can live? The Guinness Book has a record of a cat that lived for 38 years and three days in Texas. Remarkable!
  • When it comes to the number of neurons, cats aren’t a match for dogs. Cats are champs! Cats have 300M neurons, while dogs have nearly 160M.
  • Some cats have more toes than others. They’re called polydactyl cats and have 1 or 2 other toes due to a genetic mutation. Some people also say Ernest Hemingway, who was a writer, had plenty of these cats. That’s the reason polydactyl cats are sometimes called Hemingway cats.
  • I suggest you keep many cats and post your photos on Tiktok or Instagram. Maybe some people will name the cats after your name. What do you think?
  • Where do you think the pet door for cats comes from? History says that Sir Isaac Newton created the idea behind the pet door that people now carry cats outdoors.
  • There are 44 cat breeds, according to the Cat Fanciers Association. 
  • Cats are known for their jumps. They can jump 8 feet, which is about six times the cat’s body length. 
  • Cats have a sharper smell than humans. They use their powerful sense of smell to pick out objects and people.
  • How do cats sweat? They sweat through their paws.
  • Did you know that cats can only move their jaws up and down? They can’t move them side to side.
  • Whenever you see a group of cats, know that it’s a clowder.
  • You can call a female cat a queen or a molly. And a male cat is known as an atom.
  • Cats have 32 muscles. As a result, they can rotate their ears 180 degrees.
  • A cat spends most of its time sleeping and probably dreaming about how to catch mice. Please, friends, don’t be like cats. You’ll fail at school. I know it because I used to be a teacher. 
  • Cats’ noses are as different as our fingerprints.
  • Have you ever counted a cat’s eyelids? Check for three eyelids.
  • A cat’s heart beats faster than ours. Its heart rate ranges between 110-140 beats a minute.
  • Some people believe that having a cat is good for your health. I don’t go along with this idea. But who am I to bash other people’s views? 
  • Cats avoid fighting. They try to keep away from each other to prevent fights. I like this behavior. When I was a boy, I’d run away from bullies. What about you? Are you like cats or a fighter? 
  • Cats use their left paw most of the time.
