June is Adopt-a-Cat Month

We interrupt my every-four-year interest in sports to bring this public service announcement. June is Adopt-a-Cat month.

There are people out there without cats! Please help end petlessness.

-95% of cat owners admit they talk to their cats.

-A cat can be either right-pawed or left-pawed.

-A cat can jump as much as seven times its height.

-A cat cannot see directly under its nose. This is why the cat cannot seem to find tidbits on the floor.

-A cat in a hurry can sprint at about thirty-one miles per hour.

-A cat will spend nearly 30% of its life grooming itself.

-A cat’s brain is more similar to a human’s brain than that of a dog.

-A cat’s hearing rates as one of the top in the animal kingdom. Cats can hear sounds as high-pitched as 65 kHz; a human’s hearing stops at just 20 kHz.

-A cat’s sense of taste is keener than a dog’s sense of taste.

-A cat’s tail held high means happiness. A twitching tail is a warning sign, and a tail tucked in close to the body is a sure sign of insecurity.

-Americans spend more on cat food than on baby food.
