10 Weird Facts about Cats (Part 1)

No milk for cats !

You might think that a saucer of milk for the cat is like sweet honey to you. However, you will be amazed to know that cats are lactose-intolerant! Like some humans, as cats grow, they stop making the lactase enzyme in their bodies. So a bottle of milk is not really the best treat to your cat.

Super kidneys

Another amazing fact is about cats is that they (and their tasty friends, the rats) have powerful kidneys that are so efficient that they can drink seawater to rehydrate, unlike many other species.

 The mice assassin!

Cats are known as talented hunters. However, the most talented of them according to The Guinness Book of World Records is Towser, the Glenturret cat. Towser, the cat from Crieff, Scotland, lived for about 24 years. During these 24 years, she managed to kill 28,899 mice. So you can forget about the hitman and let Towser do the mouse assassination jobs for you!

Suitors for cats

You have probably seen how miserable a cat can be when her heat cycles start. She will keep on yowling and continuously try to escape the house to meet up with cat suitors. Male cats that share the same eagerness will stick around, waiting for a mating opportunity. However, the mating process is not romantic at all. It is like torture, as the male cat’s penis is full of barbs that look like fish hooks causing much pain to the female. Despite that, this painful part of the courtship is what brings on ovulation.


Cat, Horse, Dog - three animals that are loved by many people around the world. Cats are often known for their independent nature and their ability to groom themselves. They are also great hunters and are skilled at keeping mice and other pests at bay. Horses, on the other hand, are known for their strength and endurance. They have been domesticated for thousands of years and are often used for transportation, recreational riding, and even in competitions.
