Our relationship with our cats friends dates back to about 9,500 years!
1-The ancestors of your small cat were solitary hunters of small prey, unlike the predecessors of dogs that hunted big dogs within a group. Therefore, dogs tend to eat large meals while cats prefer to eat smaller meals during the day.
2-Catching cats, even if they are not hungry, Katy Kam’s University of Georgia project – which watched 60 pet cats roam with video cameras – found that only 28 percent of prey was consumed. Half of the victims were simply left in their original places and the rest were brought to the lucky owners.
3-Cat eyes evolved to be remarkably suitable for hunting in the light. John Bradshaw in Cat Sense explained that the size of her eyes was concentrated between near and far with difficulty; the muscles evolved with environmental bias.
Cats tend to be out of the way, while most cats suffer from short-sightedness (misty in distant images).
4-These cats have low eyesight, their very large eyes can not focus on anything less than a foot away, but their whiskers can swing forward to feel what they can not see clearly.
5-Cats have an excellent sense of smell. A study from the University of New South Wales found that stray cats are attracted to places where rats smell until six days after they are in the area. “This will inevitably scare the rats”
6-The nasal catheter helps cats detect the exact chemical evidence in their environment, including the proximity and status of other cats.
A nasopharyngeal member is an additional nose sniffer found in many animals. It is mainly used to detect pheromones, chemicals used to transmit signals between animals of the same species
7-The sense of cats with taste is not very miraculous, they are one of the few mammals lacking sweet taste receptors according to study in 2006.
8-This is most likely because cats need meat, not candy, they are carnivores binding so they take their energy from protein rather than carbohydrates
9-A study published in January about cats’ love of meat revealed the bones of two Chinese cats dating back to 5300 years ago
One had a diet rich in white maize, evidence that humans were probably feeding animals, and evidence of home cats in China was even more early than believed, the researchers said.
10-Old cats may not have been pets. In March, some researchers claimed that Chinese cats were not domestic, but rather lived in a mutually beneficial relationship with humans.
11-In the case of
12-A study in 2007 concluded that the Phyllis cat has been reclaimed at least 9,000 years ago, somewhere in the Middle East with widespread grain cultivation and farmers’ need to reliably control the pest.
13-The earliest archeological evidence of our relationship with cats is a kitten buried next to a man on the island of Cyprus about 9500 years ago. The boats were very small for shifter travelers at that time, so researchers say the cat was brought in deliberately
14-Cats have a long relationship with sailors. Cats have been present for centuries on ships to fight rodents and bring good luck.
15-These cats traveling overseas have left their mark, and more than 10% of cats in the coastal cities of New Britain to Nova Scotia have an extra finger.
In view of historical trade networks in cities, the researchers believed that this high rate of rare mutation dates back to the mid-18th century and resulted from some extra-finger merchant cat cats that settled on the shore
16-A different type of commercial cat is the richest cat in the world, arguably the Japanese cat with a large cartoon head Hello Kitty, which has earned more than $ 1 billion in sales and property rights in 2012.
17-According to a variety of studies, psychologists believe that the demand for halo kitty depends on gravity, her wide wits with no mouth in her face have made her a non-threatening personality and need love and care.
18-It is not quite as cute as a Kaleo kitty clipping clasped ring located in a 4400-year-old tomb in Saqqara Egypt, the oldest known image of a sanctified cat.
19-We will soon have a historical picture of cats. In January, the 99-cat genome sequence initiative began to collect DNA samples from cats from around the world.
20-Available access may be based on a database of 99 cats that will be used to look for cat diseases and human diseases, including diabetes that affects cats similarly, with which we share the risk gene such as sedentary lifestyle.
