Myths about cats

1 Cats treat themselves, licking wounds

Small wounds and scratches cat can afford long lick it disinfects them and promotes healing. If the wound is extensive or licking too insistent, it can increase and even deepen it. The rough surface of the cat's tongue like sandpaper peels the top layers of skin, slowing down the healing process.

2 Cats maintain balance with the mustache

Mustache (vibriscy) in cats - organs of touch and balance, they do not have any relation.

3 Cat and dog - enemies

Stories about the eternal enmity cats and dogs are unfounded. They just have different behaviors, often mutually understanding each other. Sometimes there are animals with a strong hunting instinct or overly aggressive, some people specifically set against their dogs to cats. However, living in the same household animals get along well with each other, and some peace-loving sociable dogs are ready to be friends with all the cats in the world.

4 cats see in the dark as in the afternoon

Another common misconception. In fact, cats see in the dark a little better than people (they have since the eye, not lights). But! The fact is that cats - born hunters! What we call a mustache, cats whiskers is located not only on the balls of his mustache, but also on the eyebrows, cheeks, legs. And ears on top, all of which are heard! This is their locating device by which they accurately identify the location of the object. In addition, even in the daytime vision of cats is not ideal. Unfortunately, our pets suffer from farsightedness and often do not notice what is going on under their noses. For example, a bowl of food they determine by smell. By the way, sniffing for food, they merely want to know its temperature, not taste.

5 If the cat does not walk in the street, she can not get sick

The causative agents of dangerous diseases can be caught in an apartment on the clothing and footwear owners, as well as through contaminated substandard food for the cat.

6 After sterilization, the cats become fat and lazy

Rather, they become more accommodating and calm that some people take for laziness. In fact, any cat - and castrated, and no - sleeping in the day not less than 18 hours. And in the winter, and day and night at all fast asleep, getting up only to eat. Cat to feel normal cat in the prime of life, requires the constant presence of two cats "in the hunt."

7 Cats always land on their feet safely

Domestic cats - excellent acrobats and instinct helps falling cat to land on their feet. At first, she turns her head and front legs, and then, steering tail - the rear part of the body. Thus, all four legs are directed towards the ground. However, this does not mean that the cat is invulnerable and feels no pain. Falling from a great height very often leads to bone fractures, and the animal can break even death.

8 Siamese cats are more aggressive than all other breeds

Only a man of his ill-treatment and lack of understanding can make an animal aggressive. Siamese cats are just very jumpy and temperamental, brighter than others express their emotions. Yes, and they have a loud voice (but not the loudest of all, it is also misleading, sphinxes, for example, the roar so that the Siamese rest).

9 Cats insidious and behave badly in spite of their owners

Behavior problems are usually associated with stress. Cats are very sensitive to changes in the daily routine of the host, for the repair and family quarrels. This causes them stress and depression. Behavioral problems can also be caused by various diseases. If the cat starts to make its case is not specifically designated areas, it can have kidney disease.

10 Cats need fish

This myth is also reflected in the composition of finished cat food, many of them include as a component of fish. This myth has a firm scientific base. Cats need taurine and vitamin A and fish products - a good source of both. However, many food products contain a sufficient amount of taurine and vitamin A, and therefore the opinion that cats always need fish properly.
