And 7 fun catariffic cat facts for you

  1. A Schnoz That's One of a Kind Have you ever closely examined a cat's nose? Those bumps and ridges are exclusive to each individual cat and can be used as an identifier—just like a fingerprint can be used to identify a human.

  2. Cats are so chatty Although cats are primarily non-verbal communicators, they will talk to you — if you talk to them. The more you talk to your cat, the more she will respond back to you. You may both be talking about totally different things, but there's definitely a conversation going on there.

  3. Cats Are Easy to Maintain They can clean themselves, use a litter box, and don't need outdoor exercise. Cats can somehow adapt seamlessly to any home environment, from a small one-bedroom apartment in the city to a spacious cottage in the country.

  4. 100 AD Cat's Take a Permanent European Vacation Egyptian traders introduced cats to Europeans, specifically the Greeks and Romans. The Romans used them as pest control.

  5. 500 BCE Cats Revered by the Song Dynasty The first cat was given to the emperor of China and quickly became a popular pet among the rich.

  6. 4000 BCE Cats Worshipped By Egyptians Considered sacred by the ancient Egyptians, many pictures and statues of cats have made down through the millennia.

  7. Science magazine reports that cat domestication goes back 12,000 years. That encompasses a lot of toys and even more naps. The process appears to have taken place in the Middle East — think Israel, Iraq, and Lebanon. Domestication did not happen overnight. Cats did not go from wild beasts to softly purring pets — just, sort of, one day.
