    A cat sees about six times better than a human at night because of the tapetum lucidum , a layer of extra reflecting cells which absorb light.



    A cat uses whiskers to determine if a space is too small to squeeze through. The whiskers act as antennae, helping the animal to judge the precise width of any passage.



    A cat will clean itself with paw and tongue after a dangerous experience or when it has fought with another cat. This is an attempt by the animal to soothe its nerves by doing something natural and instinctive.

    An apple,onion, potato all have the same taste. The differences in their flavour is caused by their smell. To prove this you can pinch your nose and take a bite from each. They will all taste sweet.
