Cats are some of the most popular pets in the world, and there’s a lot that you probably don’t know about your feline companions. They’ve been domesticated for nearly 10000 years, and I give an lot of thanks to whoever had the idea of befriending them because cats are my favorite pets. With their usually playful and friendly attitudes, and variety of different breed to choose from, it’s hard for me to believe that there are people that don’t like cats, besides the people that have cat allergies. They are quiet, stalking hunters that have amazing night vision and keen senses of hearing and smell. Although most domesticated cats weigh 4 to 5 kilograms, the heaviest cat ever recorded weighed 21.297 kilograms, which is almost 46 pounds. My personally favorite cats are the orange and white ones. Cats sleep significantly longer than average humans do, sleeping as much as 13 to 14 hours a day on average. Even though purring is the most common sound a cat makes, scientists know the less about it than chirping, chattering, hissing, and growling. Unless you’re allergic to cats, I recommend having a cat as a pet. The only thing that you have to watch out for, is that some cats might pee in your house to mark their territory from other pets. Otherwise, cats are wonderful and adorable little joyful animals that I enjoy being around.
