10 Fun Facts About Cats

For thousands of years, deliberate or not, cats have had quite an influence on humans. They have been a source of inspiration to some and reverence to others. They have also instilled fear in the superstitious and ignorant. But most of the time, whether as close companions or heroic or villainous story characters, cats have brightened the lives of millions of adoring fans.  Without mentioning names, there are a handful of characters that have entertained their watchers and readers for generations.

Ancient Egyptian art is resplendent with hundreds of wall paintings of half-human, half-feline mythological creatures that served as (false or not) gods to the ancient Egyptians. But Japanese folklore tells us a similar tale. Cats were the custodians of the human soul. One myth that is surely false is that cats were (or are) evil creatures.

Perhaps much of the inspiration and reverence, particularly since ancient times when mankind did not have the technology and resources of today to acquire knowledge, comes through knowing that cats are like their human companions, in some ways more than others.

  1. If you are able to read cat body language, you will assess that cats are as smart, if not smarter than dogs. One occasion to validate my assessment was my observation of the 7 cats that control my home, respectfully! All RESCUE cats, it took time for each one to establish their territory with the others, but in time, the growling has subsided to a minimum. An ‘in-tact’ family of 5 (mom and 3 males, 1 female) the kittens were all raised in my…their home, mom cat is now 5 human years, her kittens are 3; the senior male cat was shipped to me 12 years ago, and the youngest is male 1-1/2 years I rescued from New York, last November 2019. All of the felines have established their place within this domain, but NEVER have ALL 7 cats gathered together in ONE PLACE UNTIL FEBRUARY 2020! One morning, prior to feeding time, I looked around and I did not see any of the felines, I looked out on the terrace, which faces a canal, a view facing a plethora of mango and avocado trees, ducks, storks, egrets, iguanas etc. ALL 7 CATS WERE SITTING RESPECTFULLY CLOSE TO EACH OTHER, LOOKING OUT OF THE TERRACE (my terrace is totally screened). I WAS LOOKING TO SEE WHAT MAY HAVE CAUGHT ALL OF THEIR ATTENTION!!! I DID NOT SEE ANYTHING UNUSUAL, THEY WERE JUST SITTING STILL AS IF THEY WERE HAVING A CONFERENCE!!! IT WAS THE STRANGEST AND MOST UNUSUAL BEHAVIOR THAT I HAVE WITNESSED WITH ALL 7 OF THE CATS!!!! APPROXIMATELY 15-30 MINUTES LATER, ONE BY ONE THEY BEGAN TO “DISMISS”, AND RESUME TO MY BID TO FEED THEM!!!!

    THE FOLLOWING WEEK, THE COUNTRY WAS BEING INTRODUCED TO THE POSSIBILITY OF A TOTAL PANDEMIC, AND IN MARCH AN OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT WAS MADE THROUGHOUT THE NATION. THE REST IS HISTORY!!!!!!!!!!!

    MY ASSESSMENT, THE FELINES SENSED SOMETHING AND MY GUT SAYS THEY WERE SENSING AN UNUSUAL SHIFT IN THE WIND!!! OR SOMETHING!!! THEY ARE MY BAROMETERS AND THIS IS MY STORY!!!!
