Cat Trivia

I thought today we’d share a little cat trivia. Enjoy! 

What is the normal heart rate of a cat? How does that compare to a human?

The normal heart rate of a cat is anywhere from 150 to 210 beats per minute. Most humans have a heart rate of approximately 60 to 80 beats per minute. A cat’s heart beats 2 to 3 times faster than a human’s.

What can a cat do with its tail that no other species can do?

A cat can walk with its tail held vertically, which is different than any other species.

How does a cat’s sense of smell compare to ours?

Cats have more than 200 million scent receptors in their nasal folds compared to only 5 million in humans.
