18 Amazing Cat Facts That You Probably Didn’t Know

Cats are amazing!

Did you know that a physicist once made his cat the co-author of his paper because he’d accidentally written “we” instead of “I” throughout his work and couldn’t be bothered to change it?

That is a solution only a slightly obsessed cat lover could come up with. We approve!

Also, believe it or not, the British Government has a position called “Chief Mouser To The Cabinet Office” that can only be assigned to a cat.

The current incumbent is a handsome tabby with a white chest called Larry. Rumour has it that his skills as a mouser have been a little lacking, forcing a job share with the Chancellor’s cat, Freya, who lives next door to the UK Prime Minister’s official residence at 10 Downing Street. It’s said that Freya is more up to this Government appointed role than Larry, but nobody had the heart to tell him so Freya was drafted in as support!

These facts about cats are seemingly endless and forever interesting.

Although this may not surprise you, a study once proved that cats are more than capable of recognizing their owner’s voices, but simply choose to ignore it!

With that in mind take a look at these entertaining, and also surprising, facts about cats compiled by Bored Panda and let us know in the comments which one is your favorite.

And, when you’ve scrolled through them all, you’ll find a link to our mega list of cat facts at the bottom of the post.
