    Think you are a “crazy cat lady”?

    Did you know about these crazy cat facts? Check out some of the facts about cats Clear The Air would like to share:

    • One litter of kittens can be produced by more than one father.
    • A cat’s heart beats up to 140 times per minute, or about twice as fast as a human’s.
    • Many people think that cats are colorblind, but it’s a myth. Now we know that cats can see blues, reds and greens. Also, many cats don’t have eyelashes.
    • Cats will spend about a third of the day grooming. The process is helped along by the backwards-facing spikes on their tongues. Now you know why it feels like being rubbed with sandpaper when they lick you. They will also spend about 16 hours a day sleeping.
    • Puss, a cat from England, lived to be 36 in human years: the oldest cat on record.
    • Ancient Egyptians shaved their eyebrows in mourning when their cats died. And if someone killed a cat, he or she could get the death penalty.
    • Cats weigh an average of 12 pounds. The heaviest cat on record weighed nearly 47 pounds. The lightest was one pound, eight ounces.
    • When kittens are born, their eyes are blue – but they often change color as the babies grow. The will also start dreaming when they’re about one week old.
    • Cats can be trained to use the toilet as their litter box. Some can even be taught to flush when they’re done.
    • Researchers have tried mouse-flavored cat food. The cats who were introduced to it refused to eat it.
    • You might think it’s disgusting when your cat brings you dead prey (like a bird or mouse), but you should thank her anyway. She thinks that she’s bringing you a present.
    • Cats rarely meow at other cats. Often a cat meows to his human when you come home or even to greet you when you see each other in the house or yard.
    • And our favorite – our cats don’t think of themselves as small humans. Rather, they think of us as large cats.
