Yep, I am well and truley fed up......its been wet and mom has been at work and to make matters worse, the weather people have just said that its going to rain for the next month in the UK. Just great!!!!
I got so bored today, I went and watched dad tidy up the garage. That wasnt all that fun, dust everywhere, I had to come in and spend ages grooming to get the dirt out of my fur.
There are two species of wild cats in African and Europe that still hunt - these two species both resemble domestic tabbies.
The behaviors shown by most house cats have a parallel in the wild.
Most cats with orange fur are male. It is extremely rare for a female cat to have orange fur.
The oldest cat on record was Puss, from England, who died in 1939 just one day after her 36th birthday.
The strangest cat on record was a female called Mincho who went up a tree in Argentina and didn't come down again until she died six years later. While treed, she managed to have three litters with equally ambitious dads.
A cat will kill it's prey based on movement, but may not necessarily recognize that prey as food. Realizing that prey is food is a learned behavior.
A cat's eyes, whiskers, and ears will tell you what "mood" your cat is in. ( Blizzards always tell you that hes hungry as he has 6 mouse pouches to keep in shape!!)
The greatest number of mice killed by one cat is 28,899. Towser, a tortoise-shell tabby in charge of rodent control in Scotland, killed 28,899 mice in her 21 years. This is about four mice per day, every day, for 21 years. Towser died in 1987.
The first cat show was held in 1895 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York.
A falling cat will always right itself in a precise order. First the head will rotate, then the spine will twist and the rear legs will align, then the cat will arch its back to lessen the impact of the landing.
"Sociable" cats will follow you from room to room to monitor your activities throughout the day.
Siamese kittens are born white because of the heat inside the mother's uterus before birth. This heat keeps the kittens' hair from darkening on the points.

Sorry you are not getting the kind of weather you want. That's yucky!
I am a social kitty and follow mommy efurwhere!!! Luv, Tink
We are having a heat wave here in Iowa. All week long. Today was 98, that's 36 celsius for European kitties. PLEASE send us some rain and cool air.
I'm mostly a social kitty but I need my alone-time too.
You can send some of that rain over to Texas - we've had nonstop triple digit heat and a big drought. We could sure use it!
Sorry to hear that it's rainy. We have hot and humid so I can't go outside either.
Thanks for sharing the cat trivia!
