As you sit at your dining room table, staring at your adorable cat sitting on his cat perches, you can’t help thinking what a wonderful creature he is. He is beautiful, intelligent, and a great companion. The truth is, cats are amazing creatures that are quite unique. Let’s take a look at a few fun cat facts that you probably never heard before:
- Did you know that this adorable animal sitting on his cat perch has 290 bones and 517 muscles in his little body? It’s no wonder that your pet can leap onto his cat perches within seconds. Those powerful muscles give your pet cat such incredible speed that you can barely see him fly across his cat cage in an effort to catch an insect or bird.
- The oldest cat ever recorded died in 1939 at 36 years of age. With proper care, perhaps your feline could come close to having such an incredible lifespan. If you keep your pet well-fed and maintain his cat cages and cat perches so they are safe and sanitary, you never know what may happen. If you do want your pet cat to enjoy a long life, there are a few things that are an absolute necessity in preserving his health. Sadly, many cats do not live as long as they should. Illness or disease steals their health and claims their life far too quickly. Nothing is more heartbreaking than seeing your cat perch empty before its time. Keeping your cat healthy is not rocket science. In fact its pretty easy. Exercise is a key factor. Be sure your pet has ample space in his cage where he can utilize all those muscles in his body. Regular exercise will keep your cat’s lungs, heart and other organs functioning at peak performance.
Helping Your Pets Enjoy Their Cat Perches
- Did you know that cats will spend 30% of their waking hours grooming themselves? Your pet will sit on his or her cat perches, gently licking his fur and feet until they are spotless. No matter how useless you think this grooming routine is—remember it is highly important to your feline. Cats cannot stand being dirty. So part of helping your pets enjoy their life is allowing him to groom themselves for as long as they need. Providing your pet with comfortable cat perches in their outdoor cat runs or cat houses is beneficial. To keep things lively, you may want to purchase more than one cat perch. This is especially true if you own multiple cats. Felines need their own space when it comes to grooming. If all of your cats like to sit on cat perches in their cages while they are grooming, be sure to buy one for every pet. Place each cat perch several feet away from each other so as to give your pets plenty of room.
