Cats are cute! There are no two ways about it. They are playful, curious, and confident in all that they do.
Our feline friends are also very much in command, or so they think, of their environment and pet parents.
It is said that dogs have owners and cats have staff. So true!

Kittens are by far the cutest thing on earth! They are cuddly and sweet, adventurous, and clumsy.

What Is Not To Love?
Here in the United States, we love our cats! There are about 93.5 million cats kept as pets; about one-third of the households in the U.S. have at least one cat.
Cats are unique, cute, clever, curious, affectionate, aloof, and funny! They are creatures that are beloved by their owners and bring much joy to a person's life.
These furry friends start out life at their most vulnerable and need their mother’s tender care to survive.
They are born blind and mostly deaf, and although they might open their eyes, they can barely see.
That is one of the reasons why kittens depend so much on mom during the first two to three weeks of life.
They are so sweet and innocent needing complete care and nurturing at this point in their little lives.
A kitten will make remarkable progress in the first few weeks of life, and be able to get around and eat on their own in just about eight weeks.
Here are some other interesting facts about these enchanting creatures:
A kitten’s whiskers are as long as their body is wide.
The whiskers on a kitten are pretty impressive. Whiskers help them to navigate their world, and their whiskers will grow as wide as their body is.
Every kitten is born with blue eyes.
The older the kitten gets, their eye color will continue to develop. No matter what color eyes a full-grown cat has, they started life being blue.
A kitten cannot regulate their body temperature.
This leaves the babies very vulnerable to cold. Kittens will snuggle close to mom and their siblings for warmth. If you hold a baby kitten, make sure that you keep it nice and warm.
Kittens will hiss. As we said before, when born, kittens are blind and mostly deaf. If they smell something that is not familiar to them or they feel danger is close, they will hiss.

Cats sweat only through their paws, as this is where their sweat glands are located.
Cats can jump up to seven times higher than the length of their tail.

Much like a human fingerprint, a cat’s nose is unique.
They take more than a cat nap...a cat sleeps between 12 and 16 hours a day.
When a cat is rubbing their bodies against you, they are marking you as their territory.
A group of cats is called a clowder.

Each ear on a cat has 32 muscles, and they can rotate each of its ears independently.
If your cat brings you a dead creature, it means that they like you!
A Few More Reasons Why Cats Are The Best
As we stated earlier, cats are more popular as a pet than dogs. And while we also love dogs, we are going to concentrate on why cats make such awesome pets.
One of the reasons is that they are always entertaining. Their sense of curiosity is somehow uplifting.
They always want to know what is going on, and that curiosity can sometimes lead them in situations that result in the most delightful, laughable moments that make you glad to have a cat in your life.
Cats don't take up much room. If you live in an apartment or have a small house, they are a perfect size. If you need to take them somewhere, a little cat crate will do the job.
Not only don't they take up much room, but they also don't take up much of your time. They don't need to go outside to go potty and will rebel if you put them on a leash to take a walk.
When they want your attention, they will let you know. Otherwise, they can devise their own amusement.
Except for the kitties that we saw in the previous video, you will not have to wrangle them into a bathtub or haul them into a groomer. Cats can take care of their own personal hygiene.
Hopefully, you will never need their services as such, but a cat is an automatic mouser. If an errant rodent has the bad judgment to enter their domain, a cat will make short work of the intruder.
The ultimate critter in charge, a cat, can be left alone while you are at work or are out and about without a problem.
As long as they have food, water, and a litter box, they can (and happily will) be king of the castle until your return.
Most of all, while they may be as demonstrative as a dog, cats love us as much as we love them. They just like to keep us guessing!
