Did you know that August 8 was International Cat Day? While this post may be a bit behind, in our book it’s never too late to celebrate Cat Day at the library! Here are some interesting facts that you might not know about these fuzzy felines:
– House cats are more like tigers than you’d think. They have a lot of habits in common like marking their territory, and they share 95.6% of their genetic makeup with their jungle cousins.
– Just like humans, cats can have a dominant paw. Studies have shown that female cats tend to prefer their right paw while male cats tend to have a dominant left paw.
