#catPills – Cat science
Cat Science: learn more about him!
Cat science: what's that? Have you looked at your cat and pondered what, exactly, was going through his head? Which new plan for the conquest of the world was taking shape behind those enigmatic green eyes? Have you also thought about how cats have become man’s mysterious life companions, bound to us yet always characterized by a noble air of detachment, from everything and everyone?
Or, have you ever found yourselves wondering how your cat, essentially a couch potato, maybe even a little chubby, manages to perform stunts worthy of the most experienced acrobat?
If you have identified at least one of these traits, this book is for you: #catPills, curiosities and anecdotes to better acquaint you with your cat and his bizarre ways of interacting with the world.
#1 Purr purr — A cat’s purring has the same frequency of a diesel engine idling; 26 pings per second. All cats can purr, but only the domestic cat can do it both exhaling and inhaling. The tiger, for example, only while exhaling. Even the gorilla. Yes, the gorilla can purr (if you're nice).
#2 The latest, better cling to curtains “technology”— The cat's front paws have five toes, the back have four. Quick, run and check.
#3 Energy cat — Cats need taurine, an amino acid they are not able to produce themselves and the absence of which would render them blind. Taurine is found in meat, so cats can’t be vegetarians. It is also found in energy drinks, but this is not a good reason for them to drink them.
#4 A kibble medal — Cat can run up to 30 mph. Usain Bolt clocks in at 27 mph. Unfortunately, your cat can not compete in the Olympics.
