Cats are incredibly unique beings, with some traits similar to that of a human’s. They can be dominating, friendly or grumpy according to their own mood and they do like their own personal space, this is something we’re sure all the cat-parents might have already experienced. However, what makes them so? Below are some traits that will help you define a cat’s nature better. 

Let’s check them here!

  • Cats cannot taste sweet things because of a mutation in their key receptors. Sad.

     

  • They can hear ultrasonic noises that rodents and dolphins use to communicate.

     

  • The rigged pattern on the cat’s nose is unique, just like the human fingerprints.

     

  • Kittens also dream, just like humans. They start pretty early from about the age of a week old.

     

  • Since they release growth hormones only when they sleep, they tend to sleep a lot.

  • A cat’s brain is about 90% similar to the human brain, much more than a dog’s brain.

     

  • They don’t snuggle with you for their comfort or your pleasure, they are just marking their territory.

     

  • Just like dogs, cats also sweat only through their paws.
