"Snarf is a true character. He will be playing with you and rubbing up against you one
minute, then suddenly, without warning he'll turn into a devil kitty and swat you! He
needs medication. In the summer he would come across the street because they lived right
across the street from us. Snarf would go to the front window screen, which would be open
in the summertime, and I would call out to all my kitties, "Snarf is here. Come and see
Snarf"! All my cats would run like crazy to the front window to see Snarf, especially

Some cat facts...
- Cats have 4 kinds of hairs: down hairs are closest to the skin; awn hairs are in the middle of the coat; guard hairs keep the cat dry; vibrissae are the hairs that make up whiskers.
- "Cobby" means short and sturdy on low legs.
- A cat at rest has a heart rate of between 100 and 140 beats per minute.
- Alfalfa sprouts and vegetable greens can be a great addition to your cat's diet. Try a little finely chopped spinach or parsley (in very small quantities to start) on kitty's next meal.
- Kittens during their first month only experience deep sleep, which lasts for 12 total hours each day.
- A cat in good shape can run 30 miles per hour, but not for long distances, because cats are sprinters.
- Cats without protective pigmentation can get sunburned. White cats are especially susceptible.
- Cat can hear sounds at much higher frequencies than humans -- up to 100,000 hertz as opposed to our 20,000 hertz.
