A burial site in Cyprus provides the first archaeological evidence of humans and cats living side-by-side, as far back as 9500 BC. Cats must have been brought to the island intentionally by humans.
Cats conserve energy by sleeping for an average of 13 to 14 hours a day.
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.
Cats can jump approximately seven times their height.
Each cat’s nose pad is unique, similar to a human’s fingerprint.
