The World Cat Show was held in Moscow during the celebration of the anniversary of the main city of Russia. The exhibition was included in the program of festive cultural and educational events. Today we will tell you about interesting facts from the life of Furry Pets.

Experts from the University of Lyon (France) decided to count how many domestic cats are in the world. It turned out that there are 400 million of them on our planet, and the largest number of them is in the United States. Nevertheless, the palm is given to Australia, where there are 9 cats for every 10 inhabitants. On the Asian continent, Indonesia ranks first with more than 30 million fluffy purrs. At the same time, there are countries, for example, Peru, Gabon and some others, where the domestic cat is almost never found.

Man respects these wonderful animals. In Japan, for example, at the gates of houses there are figurines of a cat - a symbol of home and comfort. In Russia, by tradition, a cat crosses the threshold of a new home.

As you know, nature has assigned a variety of lifetimes to humans and animals. Meanwhile, youth, maturity and old age are characteristic of all living beings. Naturally, the time of entry into a particular age varies depending on the species. So, a month-old kitten is in the same stage of development as a human child 5-6 months old. A six-month-old cat is “the same age” as a seventy-grader (14 years old), and a fourteen-year-old is a seventy-two-year-old.

Cats live longer. If in 1930 they “blasphemed” their owners for 8 years on average, now they need to be “endured” for 16. The oldest cat in the world was called Puss (in Russian Kis) - he died in America, not having lived a day after parties on the occasion of their thirty-sixth birthday.

In London a few years ago, Wilberforce, perhaps the most famous cat in Great Britain, died at an Old Age. His career began in 1973, when a stray cat was picked up on the street and brought to the Prime Minister's residence, where mice were born. And the "mouse problem" was soon resolved. Since then, he has carried out his watch without fail, regularly serving four successive prime ministers. It is said that he sometimes even attended cabinet meetings. He was especially fond of in the past, Prime Minister M. Thatcher. From trips abroad, she often brought him various treats. When the cat grew decrepit, he was sent "retired" to one of the private houses. M. Thatcher's death was announced at a cabinet meeting.

Many British MPs have proposed to the House of Commons to resort to the services of a cat to exterminate the mice that terrorize MPs. The mice have become completely insolent and, having no respect for parliamentarians, appear at the most inappropriate moments of discussions, disrupting serious discussions of important issues. Attempts to get rid of the mice, of course, were made, but were unsuccessful. Laborist Dennis Turner, whose cat gave birth to offspring, presented two kittens to Parliament. Hold on, mice!

It is estimated that one cat, hunting mice, saves up to 10 tons of grain from them per year. In England, cats used to guard food warehouses were on government rations, as were cats keeping books and other relics of the British Museum from mice. And in Austria, a cat that has served as a warehouse guard for several years is entitled to a lifelong pension given out in milk, meat and broth.

The defender of the mice was the cat Kuzya, who lives in Yekaterinburg. In search of felt boots, the hostess found mice in the pantry and called the cat for help. He quickly dealt with one thief, and took pity on the other four mice. Then the rodents hid under his long hair, like chickens under a hen. Kuzya did not protest and warmed the uninvited guests on his chest. However, the owner of the apartment did not like this union.

Cats are able to predict the weather. In France, many fishermen and their families believe that if a cat passes its paw behind the ear while washing it, it will rain. If she cleans her nose, windy is expected. If the cat lies down on the ground and starts spinning, then the bad weather is over.

Many owners endow four-legged friends with the ability to predict the return of their favorite family member. Immediately before his arrival, cats begin to play with unusual energy. One hostess said that she always knows in advance about the visit of friends, because her cat goes to the dining room and starts washing beforehand.

A cat's daily toilets aren't just about cleanliness. Another purpose of “washing” is to lick a certain amount of a substance containing vitamin B from the coat, which is necessary to regulate mental balance. If you deprive the cat of this opportunity, it will become nervous and may even die.

Cats have one thing in common with giraffes and camels - they are "pacers": first they raise their right front and hind legs at the same time, then they also simultaneously raise their left legs. In addition, cats are the only animals that, when walking, rely not on the pads of their paws, but on their claws.

As you know, cats do not hurt themselves when falling, even from a great height. Why? Wyne Whitney, a professor at the University of Washington, became interested in this question.

Having studied the circumstances of 132 successful falls of animals, he found that the so-called "parachute effect" helps cats: their legs are lengthened, and their body expands, reducing the speed of falling. At the minimum height, cats primarily use the elasticity of their paws.
