    SUMMARY:
    - Cats have been domesticated for about 4,000 years! Before that, they were one of the greatest hunters feared by numerous species.
    - A group of kittens is often called a kindle; a group of adult cats is called a clowder. A female cat is referred to as a queen, and a male cat is known as a tom.
    - Cats only meow at humans. With other animals, they hiss, spit, and purr — but never meow. They also tend to greet each other by touching noses.
    - The problem of acne is pretty common among cats. They usually end up developing blackheads on their chins, which is widely known as feline acne.
    - Most cats tend to spend about two-thirds of their day sleeping. So the average 9-year-old cat has been fully awake for only 3 years of its life! Cats also spend about one-third of their waking hours cleaning themselves up.
    - One of the reasons why cats clean themselves so often is to lick your scent off! When your cat rubs against you from nose to tail, it wants to mark you as its own.
    - Cats have rather sensitive stomachs, so you should be very careful about your furry friend's menu. Never give your cat onion, garlic, green tomatoes, chocolate, grapes, or raisins.
    - Your cat always understands when you say its name…it just chooses to ignore you! Specialists believe this happens because, historically, cats haven't been domesticated to listen to people's orders — unlike dogs.
    - A cat's whiskers aren't there to make them extra cute! They’re covered in numerous nerve cells and blood vessels.
    - Cats have a special reflective layer in their eyes called the tapetum lucidum. This layer easily magnifies incoming light and allows cats to see around 6 times better than we do in the dark and low light.
    - A cat's heart beats way faster than ours with about 110 to 140 beats every single minute.
    - A cat's cerebral cortex contains 300 million neurons. Just for comparison, dogs have only around 160 million.
    - It's a natural instinct for a kitten to cover its poop. If your cat doesn't do that, this is its way of showing you who's the true head of the house.
    - Back in 2007, a calico cat named Tama became a station master and greeted passengers at Kishi Station.
    - Cats can easily jump about 6 times their own length! This is all thanks to the powerful muscles in their back legs, which allow them to jump onto any surface they like.
    - Biologically, a cat's brain is kinda similar to ours. We have almost identical brain regions that take care of our emotions, so there's a chance that you and your furry friend feel the same way sometimes.
    - In the cat world, the concept of left- or right-handedness is a thing too! Most cats are actually left-pawed!

    My cat drools when he is happy, Some cats can act like a dog but then they play with elestic bands or with rope. Cats also know when your sad so they try to make you happy. I love my cats, but sometimes they can be annoying. Like when im on my laptop, they come to me and then go sit on my keyboard... Even though they do that i cant imagine a life without them

    Touch the tip of their nose. if it is dry it means they are sleepy. It is useful when you want to sleep with your cat beside you or you want to train them to sleep in certain places. And they almost always clean themself first before sleeping.

    I love cats but some of this isn't true like:
    2. (A cat has to socialize with humans between 2 to 6 weeks are they'll never be or almost impossible to be domesticated)
    Not true. At my dad's work he has quite a few ferral cats who were raised there as kittens and never liked people. Dad was able to domesticate a few of them and they are sweet as heck but usually only loyal to him. A cat wants security and something it can trust and a provider. You do that then it's not hard. It may just take a lot of patience but other than that it's not hard. It depends on a cat's mentality. They are ALL different.

    4 and 5. (They only meow at humans and nothing else) Almost true. They will meow at their kittens and I have seen them meow at each other before.
    Another cat got up close to my cat and my cat turned around and meowed at the other cat.. and it didn't even sound aggressive it sounded normal but it could have been a kind warning.
