mutiple cats Who doesn’t love a cat.  They are so cute and cuddly.  Here are some things that you might not know about our furry little friends:

The cat is believed to be an ancestor to the African wild cat.

The cat has been living with humans from 3500 to 8000 years.

There are over 500 million domestic cats world wide with approximately 146 million cats in the United States and about half are feral/unowned.

In California, more than $50 million per year (coming largely from taxes) is spent by animal control agencies and shelters for cat-related expenses.

Every day, 10,000 humans are born in the United States, while 70,000 kittens and puppies are born. As long as these birth rates exist, there will never be enough homes for all of the animals, resulting in the euthanization of many of them.
A cat can have 1 – 8 kittens 2 – 3 times a year.

More then 35,000 kittens are born every day in the US  with about over 1,000,000 (a million) cats are born a year world wide.

A domestic cat can sprint at about 31 miles per hour.

Cats’ hearing stops at 65 khz (kilohertz); humans’ hearing stops at 20 khz.

Cats purr at the same frequency as an idling diesel engine, about 26 cycles per second.

Catnip is their favorite herb

The average cost to care for a cat for its life is $7,000.00.
