Some information about cats

Harmony and muscle


Cats are the most skilled mammals. Their brains are big and developed. Cats are digit grades. That is, they walk on their own feet. Cats move or run on one side with the front and hind legs, then the front and hind legs on the other. Only camels and giraffes do that. The cat's body has great flexibility. Because the vertebral ligaments of the spine are joined by muscles instead, as in humans, the cat may lengthen or contract its back, rotate it upwards, or run it along the vertebral line. The construction of the shoulder joints allows the cat to bend its forehead in almost any direction. Cats are powerful animals and are so well connected that if they fall or fall, they almost land on their own feet.


Teeth


Cat teeth have three functions: piercing (canines), anchoring (canines), and biting (molars). Cats do not have flat-crowned crushed teeth so they cannot chew their food. Instead, they cut it. With the exception of dogs and molars, cat teeth are more or less inactive. Most cheek teeth are not found even when the mouth is closed. All cats have a tooth formula, for both sides of the upper and lower jaws, incisors 3/3, canines 1/1, premolars 3/2, and molars 1/1. The total number of teeth is 16 in the upper jaw and 14 in the lower part. Basic, or milk, tooth No. 24 These are replaced by permanent teeth in five months. Each half of the jaw is attached to the skull by a transverse roller that fits snugly into a trough under the skull, making grinding movements impossible even if the cat's teeth are suitable for grinding.


Claws


There is a remarkable way to get a cat's claws back when they are not in use. The claw is pushed back or extended to pull the last bone of the toe, which places the claw on the tip of the front bone. The process that makes the claws extinct, spreads the toes wide, makes the foot more than twice as wide, and turns it into a really strong weapon. This claw sheathing method is present in all species of the cat family except the leopard. Although there are no nerve endings in the nail, blood capillaries are present on the inside.


Senses


Cats are usually used at night. The cat's retina is made extra sensitive to light by a layer of guanine, which causes the eye to glow in a strong light at night. The eyes themselves are large with pupils that spread out according to the density of light or simply slip, not clearly distinguishing colors. Cats have a third eyelid, or imitation membrane commonly called a haw. Its look is frequently used as a trademark of the overall fitness of the cat. The cat's sense of smell, especially in adults, is important for the assessment of its Food, in order that a cat whose nasal passages come to be blocked because of the disorder can also additionally lose its urge for food completely. Give Cats can distinguish the odor of particularly nitrogenous substances (such as fish). Cats also have a strong sense of hearing. 


They have about 30 muscles in their ears (compared to 6 in humans). As a result, they can bend them many times faster in the direction of sound than a dog. Cats' ears are acceptable for ultrasonic frequencies of up to 8,500 vibrations per second, far exceeding the hearing capabilities of dogs, which register 35,000 vibrations per second.

Attitude


Special features


The cat has a fine collection of facial expressions, sounds and tails, and body rays that show its emotional state and intentions. These different signals work to increase, decrease or maintain social distance. Rubbing the head, lips, chin, or tail on the furniture is one kind of social behavior.. Cats have scented glands in these areas of the body that play a role in creating a familiar odor in the cat's environment. The tongue of all cats, which has a sharp, backward-looking spine called the phylloform papillae near the tip, has the appearance and feel of a thick file. The spinal cord helps the cat to prepare itself. The cleansing temperament is well established in cats, and they prepare themselves in length, especially after eating.


Behavioral problems


In rearing conditions, the cat is subject to a variety of factors that can lead to emotional distress and difficulty adapting to the home environment. Some behaviors are not uncommon but are difficult for owners to accept. The most common behavioral problem in companion cats is that they sometimes urinate and defecate outside the litter box. Organic causes include feline urological syndrome (swelling and stones in the urethra, or stones, in the urethra), blocked or affected anal glands, and constipation. Emotional reasons include the addition of a new family member - another cat, baby, or spouse. Such changes can make the cat feel unsafe, so that it collects urine and feces around the house, possibly as a safety zone. Cats are creatures of habit and any change in family structure or daily routine, such as moving or rearranging furniture, can be stressful. Another common problem with cats is that they have a natural urge to move objects such as curtains and furniture with their claws.


Surgical removal of front paws to prevent property damage is generally unpleasant for cat lovers. To meet this need, cats can be trained to use carpet scratching posts at home, which can be a combination of claw cleaning and sharpening and area markings. Many cats engage in social licking and nurturing their loved ones and human companions, a natural manifestation of love and dependence Some people also interact in lactation behavior by sucking on people's feet and earlobes, their claws, and tails, and woolen blankets and clothing.


Nursing can be a way for the kitten to react and relax. It occurs very quickly in cats that wean too soon or in kittens who are malnourished. Some cats may commit suicide for various emotional reasons or may be forced to suck and eat wool.
