The name of the funny cartoon character “Felix the Cat” derived from “Felis catus” the scientific name for the cat given by the Swedish zoologist Carl Linnaeus in 1758. Researchers have concluded based on genetic material that the cat is originally from the Middle East, namely Iraq, and not a surprise. This is also the land of the earliest known civilization. Researchers also discovered that the cat is a close relative of the wild cat also known as Felis Sylvestris Lybica Sylvestris … Sylvester … According to scientists and historians, the wild cat lived along the Nile, attracted by mice. The wild cat became loved because it killed the rodents that destroyed the crop of the farmers. As a result, the Egyptians gave the cat a divine status and called the divine cat “Miw”. Now you know the origin of “Miauw”. Around 900 BC the first evidence can be found of the domesticated cat in Europe. Roman emperors were given cats as a gift. Gradually people of normal origin started to keep cats. In Europe and Asia, the domestic cat were mixed with native wild cats, creating all kinds of cat breeds as we know them today. The cat did not always had a celebrity status. Just like women with red hair, the cat, and cat worshipers, were seen as a devil witch. This delusional idea came from Pope Innocent VII. The Vatican ordered that cats should be burned. Today, the cat is a delicacy in China. In Europe they eat KitKat and in America the cat is like a teddy bear. Just a joke, except for that China part. Cats have those cute big eyes, in the Netherlands they say “Grote Klote Ogen”
Literately translated: Big Balled Eyes When seeing those cute big eyes you’re easily tempted to … This is how you see the world and that’s how a cat sees the world. The cat is color blind except for yellow and blue. Both humans and cats depend on the back layer of the eye, which we call the retina, there’s where the magic happen. The retina is made up, in part, of nerve cells that convert color and light into electronic messages send to the brain. There are two types of cells: rods and cones. Rods are very sensitive to light, though they are not used in color vision. Cones on the other hand are not very sensitive to light but are used in color vision. Because cats have more rods than humans, they use these light-sensitive cells to see in even very dim light. Cats have fewer cones than humans, they cannot distinguish between colors the way you can. #Ahhh I’m scared The reason why the eyes give light in the dark has to do with the layer behind the Retina namely the Tapetum Lucidum. It has a mirror-like effect whereby light is reflected back to the Retina The cells can than transmit it to the brain but it happens Very often Well, almost all the time The light shoots straight back to the pupil, You get that “I’m scared effect”, which is cool for Halloween. But too late, you have to wait a year Cats are color blind but they do have the talent to distinguish colors. Researchers discovered this during a test between two symbols in which the only difference is the color. yeah So Duh If you have two object One object is dark blue While the other object is yellow Duh OK, so, In 1987 the Americans did a study about a cat that fell 32 floors from an apartment. The reason that the cat survived this fall with just a broken tooth and a collapsed lung has a scientific explanation. This has nothing to do with the tail Most people think that because if you do that with a dog, which has a tail too the dog becomes hamburger. The body surface weight ratio ensures that their body of the cat have less pressure to handle when they land because the force is distributed over a larger area. In the still by still frame you can see that the cat is an acatbat No just joking An acrobat That has a very good reflection. Because the cat has largely spent in the tree during the evolution the cat has developed in such a way that they have a sixth sense where the ground is and immediately respond to it when they fall. The moment they fall, they retract like a shrimp. Now comes the exorcist story: The upper body makes almost a 180-degree turn and then the lower body. The “Look I’m stressed body language” helps him reduce speed and when they land it works as shock absorber. This is what a cat see when something is close. You know the saying, all advantages have its… disadvantages. The disadvantage is everything with a distance of 30 centimeters or closer becomes blurry. What people are doing with cats is very annoying and piss them off In the past when I was very young, last year, I thought that the Whiskers near the eyes and snout was used during the carnival but cats don’t celebrate carnival. Regardless of the cats being able to see very well in the dark, the whiskers are a very important part for hunting and moving in the dark. The root consists of two layers, in between is a tube filled with blood is triggered at the slightest vibration cells transmit signals to the brain. It forms protection for sensitive body parts such as the eye and the cat’s nose. There are also whiskers on the back of the front legs. Thanks to the whiskers, the cat can retrieve information of its victim and find the part of the body where it should place its deadly bite. The longest whiskers are on the chin and upper lip. The whiskers are put in a back position when eating and during a fight so that they do not get in the way. They move the whiskers forward during a greeting. When a cat has it whiskers backwards You know you have to run The cat can move the top row of whiskers independently of the bottom rows. A cat’s whiskers can detect even slight changes in air pressure and air currents, a sort of radar at night, This cat is like a shark on land It’s filled with nerves and sensors The cat is expressing emotion, pleasure or pain when doing this… Cats have 200 million odor sensitive cells in their nose, humans have only 5 million. When a cat put their tail in the air they allow other cats smell their ass. Ass smell is a polite way to say hey, how are you? Because a cats smell is 14 more times sensitive than humans it must be a hell of an experience to greet a cat. You now know how to greet a cat Just let the cat smell your ass If you love this kind of videos. Join the exclusive Facts Caffeine Community at patreon.com/factscaffeine.
