• The whiskers above the eyes and muzzle and below your dog’s jaw have a special name – vibrissae. These touch-sensitive hairs can detect even the most minute changes in airflow. Talk about sensitive souls! • A cat can move at a top speed of about 49km/h over a short distance. • Dogs use their swivelling ears like radar dishes and can locate the source of a sound in 0,06 of a second. Beat that, Ace Ventura! • Human brains are more biologically similar to that of a cat than to that of a dog, as the regions responsible for emotions are identical.
