Cats sure do make good thieves--despite the fact that domestic cats spend about 70% of their day sleeping and 15% of the day grooming.
Cats were brought to the Americas by colonists to protect their granaries and as pets. As settlers moved inland, cats accompanied them.
The top two rows of a cat's whiskers can move independently of the lower two rows. This allows maximum perception of the cat's immediate surroundings.
The lightness of a feline's tread can be attributed to the fact that they walk on their toes--the soles of their feet rarely touch the ground. The pillow-like balls of their paws allow them to prowl noiselessly in the wild.
