Time for some more cat facts! A good way to start the weekend?
Humans Can Make Cats Sick
It’s not very common but it can happen. The H1N1 wine flu has hit cats and dogs who got it from their owners. Most often it was mild, but sadly some of them have died.
Some vets advice to wash hands often when your sick and to sleep in separate beds (Aawe!).
Cats make a chirping — high-pitched — sounds when they are excited to see a prey. When your cat is blocked from getting closer to it, your cat may chatter 00 a movements of the lower jaw that goes together with throaty vocalization. (It reminds me of gurgling, but without water)
- Cats can easily withstand the heat and cold of a temperate climate, but not for long periods.
- Cats have little resistance against fog, rain, and snow and struggle to keep up their 39 °C (102 °F) body temperature when wet.
- People will start to feel uncomfortable when their skin’s temperature gets higher than about 44.5 °C (112 °F), but cats don’t start to show signs of discomfort until their skin reaches about 52 °C (126 °F).
- If one is not used to the sounds of cats mating, it sounds very much like a cat fight.
