Our feline pals are quite secretive, when you think about it. Fluffy has yet to clue us in on why she is so obsessed with boxes, why she hates baths, and exactly when and how she wants to be petted. While we’ve learned quite a few things about kitties, there are some things we may never quite figure out. A Washington DC vet lists some of them below.
We can officially confirm that Fluffy runs on kitty food and fresh water. However, she may also utilize solar power. No wonder your furball spends so much time snoozing in sunbeams!
If you have a cat, there’s a good chance that if you check your outfit, you’ll find at least a few strands of pet fur. This may be Fluffy’s way of claiming ownership.
Did you know that cats rarely meow at one another? They mostly only talk to their humans … usually to let us know they want food, attention, or toys.
Have you ever caught Fluffy sleeping on your book, computer, or magazine? She may be trying to soak up some knowledge!
This one probably won’t be much of a shock. Studies have indicated that cats do deliberately ignore their owners calls. Sometimes Fluffy just can’t be bothered to answer our summons.
Have you ever noticed that about 80 percent of the internet is cat photos and memes? Fluffy may be slowly trying to take over the internet!
One thing we love about cats is the fact that they make great snuggle buddies. However, this has to happen on Fluffy’s terms. Cats can be very purrticular about when and how they get petted. Too much attention is a grave misstep in Fluffy’s book. However, not paying your cat enough attention is also a serious insult to your feline friend.
Kittie are adorable, cuddly, hilarious, loving, affectionate, and lovable. They’re also ruthless murderers. Fluffy kills as many as 3.7 billion birds annually! If you include mice, squirrels, and other small critters, then the body count goes up to a whopping 20.7 billion mammals annually.
