1. Tough tongue: Cats’ tongues are covered with little structures called “filiform papillae,” which are like tiny hooks pointing toward the throat. These hook-like structures help hold food while a cat is eating. The papillae also help with grooming. Humans can feel these barbs when licked by cats.

2. Sleepy time: Cats are born loungers and will spend on average 16 hours of the day snoozing. Only sloths spend more time asleep.

3. Meeeoooowww: Cats only meow to communicate with humans, not amongst themselves. (Learn more about the Cat’s Meow and the sound the cat makes around the world.)

4. Kindle: not just for reading: A group of kittens is called a “kindle,” while a group of cats is a “Clowder.”

5. Noseprints: Cats’ and dogs’ noses are unique, just like human fingerprints.

The Cat’s Meow

The Cat’s Meow – Cats rarely to never meow at other cats. They Meow only to hooman’s. Check out ways cats communicate with each other.

The Cat’s Meow

Animals verbalize in many different ways to communicate. One thing cat owners may notice is that cats have a tendency to meow as a form of speaking with humans. However, according to the North Shore Animal League America, cats almost never meow at other cats, as meowing is a sound generally reserved for interacting with humans. Cat owners should talk back to their cats often, as cats enjoy hearing their own names and their owners’ voices.

I know I perk up when I hear my hoomans call me by my name. Even if I am laying down on the bed cat napping, I will perk up just a little.

Cats communicate silently with each other. Mostly through body language. Part of the body language includes …

  1. Staring
  2. Use of tail
  3. Stance
  4. Scent marking
  5. Eye blinking
  6. And more

Kittens are more likely to meow more.
