    CatPost 17 Things worth knowing about your cat

    I saw this article on 'The Oatmeal' blog and thought I would share it with you all.

    1. Your cats front paws have 5 toes. The back has 4. Unless your cat is [ame=""]Polydactyl cat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia@@AMEPARAM@@/wiki/File:Polydactylcat.jpg" class="image"><img alt="" src=""@@AMEPARAM@@commons/thumb/3/3a/Polydactylcat.jpg/300px-Polydactylcat.jpg[/ame], meaning having extra toes. The high rate of polydactyl cats is in Boston, USA.
    2. Had your cat been been born in ancient Egypt, the Egyptians may have used your kitty to protect crops from rats and other vermins.
    3. Had your cat stuck around in ancient Egypt for long enough, they Egyptians may have eventually come to worship your cat - even going far as to mummify your cat after death.
    4. Your cat cannot taste anything sweet. Their tastebuds cannot detect sugar.
    5. Originally cat litter was made from sand. But in 1948 it was discovered that clay was more absorbent.
    6.

    10. President Lincoln kept 4 cats in the White House.
    11. Your cat purrs at the same frequency as an idling diesel engine. This is around 26 purrs per second.
    12. Your cat's ears can hear ultrasonic sounds. Rodents use these sounds too to communicate. Your cat can hear them, but dogs and humans cannot.
