Unbelievable Cat Facts That You Probably Don’t Know

They are one of the most cutest creatures here on Earth. They serve as a good companion and a pet. Cuddly looking creatures. Of course you know what I am talking about. I am talking about cats. They are the most popular pets in the United States. They are even considered as godly by the Egyptians. Interesting? Let’s talk about more fun facts about these felines.

The World’s Richest Cat

There’s a cat that’s left with his owner’s fortune after he died. About 13 million dollars. I think that’s enough to buy him cans of tuna for the rest of his life.

Demonic Cats

Demonic Cats
“Who Do We Love? Satan!!” Said no cat ever.

During the reign of Pope Innocent VIII, he ordered the massacre of all the cats for the fact that he thinks that they are devil-spawned. How can you say that to a creature that looks so cute like that. Another bad news, it gave rise to the Black Death or Bubonic plague which killed merely 60% of Europe’s population. Why? Cats eat mice. That’s why.

Kitty On Space

There’s Laika the Space dog, then there’s Felicette. The first cat on space. She survived the trip, unlike Laika. Guess cats do have 9 set of lives.

Health Beneficial Feline

Yes, owning a cat can be healthy for you. It relieves stress and anxiety. Some even say that it reduces the chances of having stroke or heart attack. Pretty helpful cat if you ask me. Eats some mice and keeps you healthy. But it doesn’t mean that you own a cat, you will never experience circulatory problems. Eat healthy and drink healthy. Add some fruit juice into your diet. It is packed with rich vitamins and minerals. Tastes good too. If you want more information on blenders, you should probably visit this site.

They Don’t Have Night Vision

Cat Night Vision
I see you. You don’t see me.

This is a fallacy. Cats do need light to see in the dark. But they need it very minimal because their retinas can detect light at really low levels. If you lock your cat to a dark room, he probably doesn’t see anything either.
