Inside the cat
Even after thousands of years of domestication and selective breeding, domestic cats still share many features with their wild relatives that make them efficient predators and expert acrobats
No nose is alike
Just like humans, every cat has a unique print – theirs is in the pattern of bumps
on their noses.
Teeth for tearing
Adult cats have 30 teeth. As they’ve evolved to eat almost nothing but meat, they lack specialised grinding teeth.
Precision ear control
Cats’ ears contain 32 muscles each and can be rotated 180 degrees and moved
Cats have an acute sense of hearing and can detect sounds at higher frequencies than dogs can hear.
Seeing in the dark
Cats have a wider field of view and much better nighttime
vision than us, but their daytime vision is
weaker than ours.
