"In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this - Terry Pratchett"
Sunday funday factday catday 😻 To celebrate Sunday I'm featuring two precious cats, Digby and Nancy, and talking about my top five cat facts!! .
1) A group of cats is called a clowder. .
2) The world's longest cat, measuring 48.5 inches/123cm, was a Maine Coon called Stewie (although I think Digby could give him a run for his money!)
3) In Ancient Egyptian times when the pet cat died, family members would shave their eyebrows off as a sign of mourning.
4) Cats only use their meows to talk to humans, not to one another. Kittens however will use their meows to communicate with their mothers.
5) The cerebral cortex of a cat contains about 300 million neurons whereas dogs are estimated to have 160 million!
Thank you @amy.pottz for the photos and inspiration for today's post!
