We’re not going to go fire up the whole debate about cats vs. dogs again, but let’s face it: we all know that cats are clearly the winners here. Why, you ask? Because they are awesome.
Cats are fascinating, delightful creatures and to prove their awesomeness to you, we’ve put together this little list of 10 awesome facts about cats and their awesomeness.
BECAUSE CATS ARE AWESOME!
#1 Their nose prints are as unique as human fingerprints.
#2 They can run three times faster than Usain Bolt whose record is 27 miles per hour.
#3 They sleep so much that, by the time they’re nine years old, they’d have only been awake for three years of their life.
#4 They have healing powers. Well, not really, but owning a cat can help reduce the risk of stroke and heart attack by one third.
#5 Their purr does, however, have healing powers. Cats sometimes purr as a form of self-healing, especially when nervous or feeling contempt.
#6 Their purr has the same frequency as an idling diesel engine, or about 26 purrs per second.
#7 They can drink seawater. This is because their kidneys can filter out the salt.
#8 They can jump up to six times their length.
#9 They can hear the ultrasonic noises that rodents and, theoretically speaking, dolphins make to communicate.
#10 A human’s brain is more similar to that of a cat than a dog – by 90%.
Seriously, now do you agree that cats are better than dogs?
