Domestic cats love to play, this applies particularly to kittens who enjoy chasing toys and play fighting. Play fighting between kittens is more than just entertainment and can be a way for them to practice and learn skills for hunting and fighting.

Cats and humans have been closely associated for nearly 10000 years. The Ancient Egyptians held cats in the highest regard, and there were severe penalties for injuring or killing a cat. They even worshipped a Cat Goddess whom they called Bastet.

Most people refer to all felines as cats or kittens depending on the age - but this is not the proper terminology. A group of cats is called a clowder, a male cat is called a tom, a female cat is called a molly or queen while young cats are called kittens.

You might not think of your silly cat as a vicious predator but felines are natural hunters. When they walk, their back paws step in almost exactly the same place as the front paws do in order to minimize noise and limit visible tracks. Cats have powerful night vision, excellent hearing and a powerful sense of smell.

We have come to associate purring with contentment when it comes to cats, but turns out just because a cat is purring doesn’t mean the cat is happy. Cats usually make this sound when they’re content, but they also purr when they’re sick, stressed, hurt, or giving birth. So the next time your funny cat purrs they may be trying to tell you something.

my cat figured out how to let the water at the sink run so she can drink from it. water bill is getting expensive. T.T

If it is a tap with a lever use an elastic band to keep the tap closed. I've had to do this with my cat.

My bigger worry is that our cats figured out the doorknobs. We're almost obsolete...!

Gwen Pollock

We won't be obsolete. Cats will continue to expect up to be their servants, regardless of all the skills they have. That is why they are cats!

If you thought that cats are not intelligent.....I think you've got the wrong perception, they are survivors, they are also are comfort seekers.

Well, cats are a bit snobby when it comes to water I think. My cats absolutely refuse drinking the water from the tap for some reason, they like to drink bottled still water. I tried filling up the bottles from the tap a few times and then pour it on their bowls, showing them it's being poured "from" the bottle, but I guess they figure it out from the taste or smell or something, so they refuses to drink it. Thank god they don't talk, they'd probably ask for Voss or Fiji.

I was just going to comment that I thought this might be a bengal. They also really love a fresh stream of water. I catsat for two and the owners actually left their faucet drip for them.
