Friday Feline Fun Facts

The mom found some facts she thought were interesting and wanted to share.

A - Sir Issac Newton invented the cat flap so his kitties could visit him in his lab.
B - Cat urine glows under black light.  (I don't think I want to see every pee-mail.)
C - Kitties purr at about the same frequency as idling diesel engines - 26 cycles/ second.
D - Cats wrinkle their noses when puzzled or insulted.  (Or if they smell something they don't like.  We laugh at little Oui when she does this.)

That's it!  Have a great day & a relaxing weekend!

Try again. Blogger swollowed my comment just now.

Interesting facts. Love the one about purr and diesel frequency.

Your mom is so diligent in helping you blog when she is working such long hours. Puts SS to shame. What say I join you and give SS the boot?

We knew some of those, but didn't realize Newton invented the cat flap! Cool!

Happy weekend to you all. :-)

Those are some great facts. We actually got one of those black lights but it is interesting to use. It has to be dark for it to work and so you have to do it at night. I need to use it more. Take care and have a super day.

Have a great weekend.

I didn't know about those and the pee glow would have been useful during Halloween!
