Your help always needed 


Did you know that cats are one of, if not the most, popular pet in the world? There are over 500 million domestic cats in the world.

Cats conserve their energy by sleeping for an average of 13 to14 hours a day!

Cats have flexible bodies and teeth adapted for hunting small animals such as mice and rats. They can be lethal hunters and very sneaky. When they walk their back paws step almost exactly in the same place as the front paws did beforehand. This keeps noise to a minimum and limits visible tracks.

The heaviest domestic cat on record is 21.297 kilograms (46 lb 15.2 oz).

Cats have powerful night vision, allowing them to see at light levels six times lower than what a human needs in order to see. This is why they make such great hunters.

Cats love to play, especially kittens who love chasing toys and play fight. Play fighting among kittens may be a way for them to practicse and learn skills for hunting and fighting.

On average cats live for around 12 to 15 years.

Cats spend a large amount of time grooming their coats to keep themselves clean.
