A cat’s back is extremely flexible because it has up to 53 loosely fitting vertebrae. Humans only have 34.

Most cats had short hair until about 100 years ago, when it became fashionable to own cats and experiment with breeding.

In the 1750s, Europeans introduced cats into the Americas to control pests.

Foods that should not be given to cats include onions, garlic, green tomatoes, raw potatoes, chocolate, grapes, and raisins.

Tylenol and aspirin are extremely toxic to cats, as are many common houseplants.

i didn't know cats couldn't make their own fat.....i thought they were just like humans, some were more capable of gaining weight than others because i have 3 cats, 2 are brother and sister, and they are both skinny. but my other cat (who is not blood-related to the others) is fat. can anybody tell me why this might be?
