Cat Anatomy and Fascinating Facts

Having produced a few fun and interesting infographics on our canine friends, we thought it was high time we did the same for those felines.

We know that you loved our light-hearted look at the difference between Human and Dog anatomy and thought it would be fun to do the same with cats.  So here it is.  A fun and fascinating look at the cat and it’s anatomy, we hope you’ll be as amused and surprised at some of the facts that we found.

With the largest eyes of any mammal, a top running speed of 31mph and a similar body temperature to the human body, the cat is more than just an adorable furry friend.

    We really like this graphic presentation of cat facts.

    The mom says she’ll check out your site when she gets a chance (she’s at work now). We tend to steer clear of featuring business sites on our own blog, as ours is for entertainment purposes only. But have you sent your site link to the Cat Blogosphere? There are a number of cat bloggers in the UK. :-)

      Hi Fuzzy Tales :) I did send this off to Blogosphere yesterday but didn’t get a reply… I might give it another go. Thanks!

    Hi Matt, ncie page. One thing: most cats are not solitary by nature. That “fact” went out in the 70s when animal behaviourists started proper studies of cat colonies. Some big cats are solitary by nature but not /*Felis catus*/.

    And I’m amazed that Russians aren’t more into cats. Always thought they were a bit suspicious :-)

    Hey, Matt, glad you made it to the ‘sphere! It’s good to see facts depicted graphically. Wait a minute, that didn’t sound right. Well, you know what I mean! We enjoyed reading them very much.

    if cats can’t taste sweets, why do two of mine have to eat everything that i do? if i have a donut (especially timbits) they won’t leave me alone until i give them a little piece. love the article. interesting to know how old my cats are in cat years. the oldest is 75, no wonder he is becoming so cantankerous (MOL)

    We think this is a very entertaining way to give away the State Secrets of Felinity Assembled, so we forgive you…

    And now we are going to spend some time getting acquainted with the rest of your website! ;-D

    Hey cinnamon chaisson,

    The reason why cats do eat sweets even tough they don’t sense their taste, is because they’re intrigued by the lack of taste and keep asking for more hoping that they’ll sense something, someday (they think that the sweets must have some taste since we, humans, like them so much :D)

    Amazing facts! Will never think of that food pouch I open for my cat in the same way again now thought – I’ll just imagine that I’m pouring out five mice for her!
